Protecting and encouraging a strong family is of vital importance to our nation’s progress and prosperity. We should continue to promote policies in Washington that allow families to flourish and that protect life at all stages. Our nation was built on Judeo-Christian values and we must not turn our backs on these principles. While the First Amendment to the Constitution explicitly states that Congress shall make no law establishing a state religion, it also prohibits Congress from prohibiting the free exercise thereof. The First Amendment guarantees Americans the freedom to think, speak, and believe as they choose. To force Americans to check their religious beliefs at the door when engaging in any sort of public debate is wrong. I will fight to maintain our rights and to honor and carry on our religious heritage.
Again in the 114th Congress, I am proud to serve as a member of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, Congressional Prayer Caucus and Values Action Team.
