U.S. Atty. Gen. William Barr said protecting religious freedom is a priority of the Dept. of Justice. He said in a speech at Notre Dame, Friday, that religion and the moral values it provides, is necessary to help people
He said that having strong morals, grounded in religion, is what the framers of the Contitution were counting on when they made the US a limited government. He says his Dept. of Justice will protect religious freedom vigorously.
Barr, agin talking about the framers of the Constitution, added that a free society must have the freedom to practice religion
That virtue to handle freedom he said would come from religion or at least morals. Barr says his Dept. of Justice will strongly protect religious freedom.
