SPRINGDALE, Ark. — Ronnie Floyd, pastor of Cross Church and president of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, issues the following statement:
“This Supreme Court decision is a huge victory for religious freedom — not because it has settled the question of when an American can refuse to perform a service because of a sincerely-held belief, but because it defended faith against government overreach. I’m encouraged our Supreme Court sided overwhelmingly on the side of faith. Regardless of our religion or lack thereof, we should all be able to celebrate that we live in a country where the sincerely-held beliefs of individuals are protected.”
Ronnie Floyd is the senior pastor of Cross Church and president of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, which each year mobilizes millions of Americans to unified public prayer for the United States of America.
