ADF welcomes nomination of Sam Brownback to religious freedom post

Thursday, July 27, 2017

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom President, CEO, and General Counsel Michael Farris regarding President Trump’s announcement that he will appoint Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback to the post of ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom:

“Religious freedom around the world must be taken seriously, and Gov. Brownback is unquestionably capable of bringing that seriousness to this vital position. The nomination of someone of Gov. Brownback’s stature is a clear indicator of how important this position is and how important religious freedom is. It’s clear from history that when any nation abuses or suppresses religious freedom, other freedoms are likewise in danger. America needs a strong advocate like Gov. Brownback for the basic human rights and dignity of those who wish to live consistently with their faith without undue government interference. We commend President Trump for considering someone whose clear passion and understanding of this issue will work for the good of persecuted people of faith around the world.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
