U.S. Bishops Provide Religious Freedom Website
Concern for the safeguarding of the most cherished freedom guaranteed to Americans by the Constitution has brought about development of a new website aimed at protecting that freedom. Created by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, www.FirstAmericanFreedom.com provides information on how to promote Religious Freedom in our country.
The site offers resources on the historical nature of Religious Liberty in the U.S., as well as the current threat to it by all levels of government. It also contains two educational documents; “United for Religious Freedom,” a statement specifically on the HHS mandate, and “Our First, Most Cherished Liberty,” a statement more broadly on threats to religious liberty, both here and abroad.
In addition, the site provides additional resources, including testimonies on the subject given by Church leaders and a list of frequently asked questions.
