The past year was a busy one for Alliance Defending Freedom.
President Donald Trump took office, and with it came an executive order on religious liberty, a new U.S. Supreme Court justice, and an amended abortion-pill mandate. Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Missouri won its Supreme Court case this summer, and we defended Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips before the High Court earlier this month.
And that’s only a small fraction of what happened in the past year.
To take a look back on some of the events that took place, we’d like to revisit our top five most-read blog posts:
