REMARKS

Remarks by Vice President Pence at the 2nd Annual Religious Freedom Ministerial
LAW & JUSTICE

Issued on: July 18, 2019

U.S. State Department
Washington, D.C.

10:59 A.M. EDT

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, Ambassador Brownback, Your Excellencies, and to all of those who have struggled under religious persecution: You honor us by your presence, all.

Welcome. Welcome to the second Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom. And welcome to the largest human rights ministerial ever held at the United States State Department. (Applause.)

We gather today as people who believe in freedom of religion and also the power of faith. As Vice President of the United States, I stand for the freedom of religion that animated the American founding and is enshrined in our Bill of Rights. But this is a special day for me as well because, on a personal level, my faith in Jesus Christ has brought meaning and purpose to me and my family every day of my life.

So Im honored by your presence, and Im especially honored to address you today as Vice President to an American President who has been a great champion of religious freedom at home and abroad. So allow me to begin by bringing greetings and welcome on behalf of the 45th President of the United States of America, President Donald Trump. (Applause.)

{snip more of the same}

Well always continue to stand for the freedom to live, to work, and worship according to the dictates of your conscience. And freedom of religion will always be an American anthem.

3. What's with trump and pence ....

no one is taking anyone's religion away. There is total religious freedom in our country but it is supposed to be separated from government, that's what freedom of religion is. You are free to go to whatever and where ever your choice may be even if it's a witches coven. I wish they would stop with this garbage.
