Freedom Matters Podcast: In Defense of the First Amendment

October 17, 2017

By: Bob Trent

"The First Amendment Defense Act ensures that tolerance remains a two way street.  Please do not allow marriage to become a litmus test for participation in our civil society"
- Kristen Waggoner, Senior Vice-President of US Legal Advocacy
testifying before Congress regarding FADA

 Across the country Americans must choose between their deeply held beliefs and making a living; pro-life pharmacists forced to dispense abortion inducing drugs, creative professionals facing jail time for holding to the belief that marriage is between a man and a woman.

Alliance Defending Freedom clients and attorneys recently testified before congress in support of the First Amendment Defense Act and the Conscience Protection Act. Legal counsel Kellie Fiedorek joins Freedom Matters to discuss why these bills are needed to ensure that the American experiment survives where all are free to believe and peacefully act on those beliefs.
