Religion and Politics: When news of the pending French head scarf ban first broke, DH said that the article's headline should have read, "Muslims, Christians, and Jews Agree About Something in France."

Many Americans are worried that we are on the verge of losing our religious freedom, either to the secular Left or to the evangelical Right. In spite of these (sometimes legitimate) concerns, there's no denying that what's happening in France simply would not happen in today's United States. That is because, with all our differences, most citizens of this country continue to view freedom of religion as a basic American value.

Thank God.
