Religious Liberty Issues

Protecting Churches and Other Religious Organizations

Protecting the right of all religious organizations to operate freely according to their beliefs.
February 8, 2016

First Liberty represents religious organizations of all faiths, including churches, synagogues, temples, and other religious institutions. At First Liberty, we equip these organizations with the knowledge they need to safeguard their rights, and are committed restoring those rights when they are violated.

According to the First Amendment, case precedent, and federal and state laws, churches have the right to:

  • Preach and teach without legal reprisal
  • Serve the community free from discrimination
  • Meet and assemble without government restrictions or harassment
  • Operate and govern internal affairs according to religious beliefs

Empowering You with the Knowledge You Need

For a more exhaustive explanation of these rights and what they mean, please read or download our free Religious Liberty Protection Kit for Churches.

To The American Legion:

As a grateful citizen, I support your effort to honor those who have fallen in battle and to keep the Bladensburg WWI Veterans Memorial standing as a visible reminder of valor, sacrifice, endurance, and devotion.

Veterans memorials like the one in Bladensburg, MD are symbols reminding us of the sacrifice of our service members and the cost of war. Tearing down the Bladensburg Memorial would erase the memory of the 49 fallen heroes of Prince George’s County—like they never even existed.

We cannot allow the Bladensburg Memorial to be bulldozed.

Please know that you have my support and backing in your petition to the U.S. Supreme Court.
