Our nation was founded on the principle that Americans have a right to worship and the freedom to practice the religion of their choice.
Today’s news of vandalized cemeteries and bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers flies in the face of what we stand for as Americans and I’m deeply troubled by it.
This is a dark day in America for religious freedom, a principle for which I’ve worked tirelessly to promote and advance. These malicious attempts to instill fear in other believers must quickly be condemned by elected and political leaders across this nation. I am convinced America’s best days still remain in front of us, but our true potential can only be achieved when collectively we reach for the moral high ground and stand together to advance our shared values.
