Religious Freedom And Social Justice Are Not In Conflict

On Monday, a group of conservative Christian women gathered for a prayer rally at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to criticize feminist activists and church-state separation. 

“For years, the feminists lied to us,” author Lisa Bevere said during the event, as the crowd cheered, according to The Washington Post. “They said for us to be powerful as women, we needed to act like men.”
