The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Vice President of U.S. Legal Division, Kristen Waggoner
regarding U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement
of the Religious Liberty Task Force, a new initiative that will further the Department of Justice’s work to protect and promote religious liberty:
“Religious liberty is our most precious gift as humans and our most cherished and protected freedom as Americans. We highly commend President Trump and Attorney General Sessions for following through on the most vital promises of their public service: the preservation and protection of religious liberty. Too many of the clients ADF represents are risking their businesses, their life savings, and their safety to follow their conscience. All Americans should be free to peacefully live and act consistent with their convictions and faith without threat of government punishment. Freedom of speech and religion aren’t subject to political and cultural whims; they are constitutional guarantees, and we are grateful that this administration recognizes that reality and is taking serious steps to correct injustice and protect the freedom of religion.”
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
