The following statement may be attributed to Hiram Sasser, Deputy Chief Counsel of First Liberty Institute:
As a national legal organization that defends religious freedom for all, we applaud the nomination of Sam Brownback as the Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom.
America leads the world in protecting religious liberty. We believe Sam Brownback will, once confirmed, work tirelessly at all levels to defend the human right to religious freedom for all.
As Article 15 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights reminds us, “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”
First Liberty Institute is confident that as Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, Sam Brownback will embody these ideals and defend religious liberty for all, both here and abroad.
