As Government Cancels Religious Freedom, This Nonprofit Is Battle Ready

With religious liberty increasingly under attack in America, the Religious Freedom Institute is launching a new committee. The National Committee for Religious Freedom aims to defend religion for all by backing political candidates who support a full vision of free religious exercise at the local, state and national levels, regardless of political party.

Over the weekend, President Biden declared Jan. 16 Religious Freedom Day, honoring America's commitment to protecting people's right to practice their faith. However, a slew of recent cases shows religious liberties being chipped away.

The examples are vast. Washington state high school football coach Joe Kennedy was fired for his post-game prayers. A Christian photographer was facing thousands of dollars in fines, jail time and a revoked business license for declining to take photos for same-sex weddings. At Health and Human Services, a leaked memo revealed the Biden administration seeks to un-enforce the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The Religious Freedom Institute says these threats against religious liberty can't go unchecked.

"It was one of the rights that God gave us," former Religious Freedom Ambassador Sam Brownback told CBN News. "He gave us religious freedom. He gave us the right to do with our own soul what we choose, and no government has the right to interfere with that."
