Elder Dallin H. Oaks Speech On Religious Freedom

This is an excellent talk discussing religious freedom and law. It does not have an LDS focus and should be watched by all: Mormon, Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Atheist, Agnostic, etc. I especially appreciate the continued inclusion of Muslims in his speech as worthy of the same religious freedoms as us all.

I think all types of people will find this interesting as he speaks about the societal shifts of definitions and views of religion and how moral relativism has lead to the decline of religious tolerance. He brings up many current events, like Prop 8, and discusses specific individuals’ opinions within the government, including the Obama administration and Obama himself.
