Legislative Agenda Topic 7: Religious Liberty

Every person should have the ability to seek and act in accord with the truth. Yet today, religious liberty is under attack by the state. Such liberty is not only about our ability to worship by going to Mass on Sunday or praying the Rosary at home. Rather, it is about whether Christians can make our contribution to the common good of all Americans.

Therefore, the TCCB seeks to maintain and protect religious liberty. Please use this page to learn more about the TCCB's specific agenda items and to contact your legislator. If you have questions about this policy agenda item, please contact us!
