ADF president on confirmation of Sam Brownback as ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom


Wednesday, January 24, 2018

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom President, CEO, and General Counsel Michael Farris regarding the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback for the post of ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom:

“ADF is very pleased to congratulate Gov. Brownback. America must defend and protect religious freedom globally, and Gov. Brownback is unquestionably capable of engaging this vital mission. 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 for the basic human rights and dignity of those who wish to live consistently with their faith without undue government interference. We commend the Trump administration and the Senate on the confirmation of Gov. Brownback, 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.
