Members from the group Catholic Advocate are launching a nationwide campaign inviting people from every faith to mobilize for the protection of religious liberty in the U.S.
“No other president in American history has so blatantly chipped away at our religious liberties,” group vice president Matt Smith said in an Oct. 27 statement.
Smith cited the current administration's refusal to uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, allowing taxpayer dollars to go towards abortion providing organizations like Planned Parenthood, and lifting the ban on embryonic stem cell research as among several examples.
He also pointed to the governments decision to strip “conscience protections for health care workers, and refusing to meet with or respond to our Catholic Bishops’ concerns.”
