Family Research Council believes that religious liberty—the freedom to hold religious beliefs of one’s own choosing and to live in accordance with those beliefs—is an inherent human right. Religious belief is of the utmost importance because it informs our deepest convictions about God, the world, and ourselves. The American Founders understood the importance of religious liberty and ensured that it was protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. All people have the right to bring their religious beliefs into the public square. Churches, private organizations, public servants, and other individuals have the right to proclaim their faith in public settings and to bring their religiously-informed moral values to bear in all aspects of public life, including public policy decisions.
For 40 years, we've been committed to advancing faith, family, and freedom in public policy and the culture from a biblical worldview.
