Fr. Pavone: President is keeping his promises on religious liberty

Priests for Life

October 06, 2017
   
 
TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding an announcement on religious liberty expected to be released by the Trump Administration.
 
“Priests for Life has been informed by senior administration officials that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be issuing guidance today that will grant Priests for Life and other faith-based employers the same exemption to the HHS contraception mandate that is given to churches. This is what we have sought all along, and is the outcome we were hoping for when we took our case, Zubik vs. Burwell, to the U.S. Supreme Court.
 
“The attorney general also will be issuing guidance on the Johnson Amendment, specifying that it shall not be used against churches and pastors in a discriminatory way to silence them on political matters.
 
“This is a great day for religious liberty. The attorney general’s guidance reinforces President Trump’s commitment to religious freedom. The president has made promises in this regard, and today he is delivering on those promises.”
