The United States Constitution officially recognizes our God given rights and, as a Member of Congress, I am sworn to protect those rights. Religious liberty is protected by the 1st Amendment. That encompasses the right to live out your religious beliefs, well beyond simply participating in worship. The concept of “separation of church and state” is meant to keep the government out of the church, to keep the government from dictating your religion.
Citizens should not be forced to participate in actions that violate their deeply held religious beliefs, whether that involves paying for abortion-causing drugs or offering services for celebrations that violate your beliefs.
I will continue to fight for religious liberty for all Americans.
