One of my new favorite things to do each and every night is watch the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. There is something about his humor and his take on polotics that I really enjoy and it is a good way to wind down from the day. But after a week or two of watching I realized that John Stewart is not only funny but has a lot of great points.
The video below is just one of the many examples where Stewart puts together clips and info to make a point. The big debate is over the announcement of NASA taking part in working with the Muslim World. What starts as a pretty obvious and weird idea (NASA not participating in space “stufff”) turns into a theological discourse that makes you think. 3 minutes in it gets very interesting.

This conversation was very interesting to me. Only a couple days removed from the day we celebrate our independence, I found it fascinating that freedom was at the center of controversy. Mainly, freedom of religion. Like I said before, the celebration of freedom was at the center of conversation for many, and churches took that opportunity to celebrate the fact that Christians were allowed to worship freely. I cannot help but watch this clip and see the complete double standards that are set in place.
I want to get your opinion on this video.
What is your reaction to freedom of religion? What about if the religion is not the one you practice?
Would love for you to share this with your community by tweeting this out or maybe writing a follow up post to this video. I think this would be a very healthy conversation to have. Please participate in the conversation below in the comment stream and tweet out the link to this post.
