Religious Liberty: from Truett to Jeffress is a million miles

Ethics Daily writes on the views of religious liberty of the pastors of the First Baptist Church of Dallas.  First, is the great George W. Truett and his famous 1920 speech "Baptists and Religious Liberty" which used to be one of those speeches that made one proud to be a baptist.

The other is current First Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress and his speech which endorsed Rick Perry and criticized Mitt Romney for not being a real Christian.

Here is some of what Truett said:

 "It is the consistent and insistent contention of our Baptist people, always and everywhere, that religion must be forever voluntary and uncoerced, and that it is not the prerogative of any power, whether civil or ecclesiastical, to compel [people] to conform to any religious creed or form of worship."
