U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines introduced a Senate resolution designating today, Jan 16 as Religious Freedom Day. This resolution commemorates the 236th Anniversary of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, a landmark achievement that laid the foundations for the First Amendment.
“America stands as a beacon of hope and a symbol of religious freedom around the world. We would not be known as the land of the free without our fundamental right to worship freely,” Daines said. “We must do everything we can to protect this freedom which allows all Americans to practice their faith without fear.”
