Senator delivers final speech in series highlighting importance of religious liberty

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Sen. Orrin Hatch, the senior Republican in the United States Senate, delivered the eighth and final speech in a series on the importance of religious liberty in public life.

The series, which began in September, focuses on ways this fundamental freedom is under attack both at home and abroad and is informed by his work on the issue spanning over two decades. Hatch was a co-author of the original Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Senator Hatch’s previous speeches addressed the following topics:

“My purpose in this series is to present the full story of religious freedom, in the hope that we may better understand and appreciate it and draw guidance for the future,” Hatch said. “Charting a path forward requires understanding where we have been and taking stock of where we are right now. The story of religious freedom as I have laid it out shows that we must choose between two starkly different paths.”

    When I read the headline, I had hopes that Snorin Orin was retiring. Just more religion mixed with politics.

    I for the life of me, fail to see how these people feel their religious freedom is under attack. Nobody is telling them to not practice their right to believe what they want. There are no laws being made to prohibit their practice. Poor persecuted babies live by a fairy tale and think we are out to get them.

        Not just a WHINO “WhiteHouse Idiots Nurturing Oddballs”, but a grinch, a troll, a buffoon. Enjoy your socialist activities, and on your way to spend your food stamps remember, Merry Christmas! Hope that blows your PC up your nose.

          So says Nolan while collects his government retirement. Never worked a day in the private sector but he loves to whine about socialism. Hypocrisy is your hallmark.
