DALLAS — Jason Yates, CEO of My Faith Votes, issues the following statement applauding President Trump’s remarks on religious freedom Monday ahead of the annual United Nations General Assembly:
“I celebrate President Trump’s call before the United Nations to protect religious freedom and thank him for drawing the attention of the world to the most fundamental of freedoms. As the president noted, nearly 80% of the world does not enjoy full religious freedom, and too many faithful worshippers fear losing their jobs, place in the community or their very lives. The United States has experienced unparalleled peace and prosperity in part because religious freedom, a right bestowed by God not government, forms a cornerstone of our republic. I implore the world to join the U.S. in doing more to protect the fundamental right of all people to worship as they personally choose.”
