Here is one last-ditch attempt on the part of a few Christian groups to salvage freedom of speech in a day of social media mobs, corporate hate speech policies, blacklisting, cancel culture, and campus speech policing. The Philadelphia Statement is hoping for a return to civility, intelligent debate, thoughtful exchanges, and the First Amendment. We’ll see. . . . Kevin Swanson provides a bit more on the history of freedom. It turns out that Christians paved the way for freedom in the West — the Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights, etc. It is always non-Christians and anti-Christian apostates who broke down freedom in the Western world.
Homeschooled himself in the 1960's and 70's, Kevin Swanson and his wife, Brenda, are now homeschooling their five children. Since graduating from his homeschool and then serving as student body president of a large west coast university, he has gone on to other leadership positions in corporate management, church, and other non-profits.
