Religious Freedom: A Right to Believe in!
By Tony Perkins
When it comes to religious liberty, Senator Ted Cruz thinks the Constitution is pretty clear: the government’s role is not to restrict freedom. At last week’s Star Spangled Sunday simulcast, the Texas Republican told churches across America that, “The federal government has no business asking anyone the content of their prayers.” Watch the clip below to see the strong message Sen. Cruz had for those in government who would seek to restrict the unalienable right of religious liberty.

Sen. Cruz is just one of the many exciting speakers who will address us in this weekend here in Washington, D.C. at the Values Voter Summit. The nation’s most important gathering of social conservatives will hear from speakers like: Duck Dynasty’s Al Robertson, Gov. Sarah Palin, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Rick Santorum, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Generals James Conway (Ret.), Jerry Boykin (Ret.), and Bob Dees (Ret.), Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), John Fleming (R-La.), Frank Wolf (R-Va.), Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Brigitte Gabriel, Star Parker, Naghmeh Abedini (wife of imprisoned Christian Pastor Saeed Abedini), the Benham Brothers, Duggar Family, and many more! We’ll also be celebrating religious freedom as we honor Meriam Ibrahim — the Sudanese mother who was sentenced to death because of her Christian faith — at a special gala dinner in her honor. It’s not too late to join us in person — click over to valuesvotersummit.org for more details!
