Religious Liberty

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

    Strongly Agree   

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

    Strongly Agree   

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

    Strongly Agree   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

    Yes   

What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

The term "wall of separation of church and state" was from a letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptist Church. The phrase is not from the Constitution, is not a law, nor a part of any law. It has repeatedly been taken out of context and used to mislead courts for over 60 years to take away the freedoms of Christians to pray, to worship, and even to have public displays of their beliefs. The original meaning was to prevent the government from taking over the church, and turn it against the people, not to keep religious beliefs out of the public process.

Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.

    Strongly Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

    Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am Christian, and believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and the birth, life, and sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon a cross. I believe in His resurrection life and His gift of of eternal life that He freely offers to all of us if we believe in Him, and His sacrifice upon the cross for our salvation.
