Religious Freedoms Faltering?

PrayAP_Logo-fade-wMillions of Americas participated recently in the National Day of Prayer. Many met in houses of worship, others met in hotel ballrooms, and some even gathered around flag poles at local city halls. Religious belief and practice form the foundation of a healthy civil society and should be safeguarded in our laws and culture.

Alarmingly, some religious freedoms are faltering, due to increasingly antagonistic actions by the current Administration toward the role of faith in the public square. Even military chaplains are now being threatened with court marshal trials, if they share their religious beliefs in counsel with a non-believer.

Protecting the freedom of individuals and organizations to live out their faith in public ways—not trampling religious liberty through coercive government dictates—can ensure that more people enjoy the benefits of religious practice and service, as intended by our Founders and guaranteed in our Constitution.
