- We support the separation of religion and state and believe that public policy should not impose or privilege any religious viewpoint.
- We support religious liberty and the ability to exercise one’s rights based on conscience, moral codes and beliefs.
- We support public policies that both respect religious liberty and protect against the use of religious beliefs or traditions to discriminate or undermine equality.
- We advance religious liberty and justice that respects individuals, supports the common good and reflects the foundational principles of our nation.
