Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) Introduces Resolution Calling for the Protection of Religious Liberties
WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Congressman Alex X. Mooney introduced his resolution H.Res. 514, Protecting Religious Freedom in America.
“The ability to live by our religious convictions is inherent to the founding principles of our country. Unfortunately, this right is under attack today. Despite this freedom being explicitly laid out in our Constitution, we have seen federal, state, and local governments continue to violate this founding principle,” said Rep. Mooney. “The right to free expression of religious ideas without fear of persecution is expressed in the Declaration of Independence, made into law in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and reiterated in many Supreme Court cases. We must fight for this right. This resolution is one way to do that. Congress must make a strong statement that attacks on religious liberty must stop.”
H.Res. 514 has been endorsed by the Family Research Council and already has 15 co-sponsors.
