There are very real and imminent threats to the basic rights and freedoms of religious minorities and nonbelievers in the United States, Americans United for Separation of Church and State has told a U.S. House panel.

The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director o­f Americans United, testified Oct. 26 before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution as part of a hearing on “The State of Religious Liberty in the United States.”

Lynn told the panel that even though the United States is one of the most religiously diverse countries in the world with some of the greatest religious liberties, serious threats to religious freedom remain.In written testimony submitted to the subcommittee, Lynn said religious minorities and nonbelievers “are being denied the basic rights that many of us practicing a majority faith take for granted every day.”
