Religious Freedom and Sexuality

The legalization of same-sex marriage, the proliferation of sexual orientation and gender identity laws, and other political and cultural trends contrary to Christian (and other religious) beliefs about sexuality have resulted in an increasing number of Americans facing public denunciations, censure and hostility, lawsuits, exorbitant monetary fines, loss of jobs, physical assault, and even prison because of their deeply-held religious beliefs on marriage and sexuality.
