Joining First Liberty this summer are more than 20 interns from diverse backgrounds and from some of the top universities in the country. It’s a blessing to see so many bright, talented and passionate leaders standing strong together in the fight for our first and most foundational liberty, religious freedom.
This year, instead of celebrating Christmas in July, the Knights of Columbus take to the courts to fight for their constitutional rights. First Liberty recently filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of the Knights of Columbus against the City of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, after city officials outrageously decided to ban a Nativity scene and all religious holiday displays.
This weekend, as we celebrate Independence Day we’re taking a look at how faith and religion were essential for America to achieve independence.
Dr. John D. Wilsey has joined First Liberty as an affiliated scholar. He brings experience and expertise that will be invaluable for religious freedom.
Last week, First Liberty took action for Gail Blair, a blind woman who was banned from entering a park for the “crime” of sharing her Christian faith.
The COVID-19 pandemic has come at a great economic cost. But despite facing financial pressure, America’s religious communities have shown tremendous character and continued to serve as their faith teaches. This crisis has revealed that we must protect religious liberty, or we’ll end up paying the cost in much more than constitutional currency. Unless we ensure religious liberty is essential, our country will have to pay a crippling price in real dollars.
