Sen. Colbeck defends religious liberty on Senate floor

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Patrick Colbeck, R-Canton, gave the following statement to his colleagues on the Senate floor in defense of religious liberty.

“Religious liberty in our nation is at risk,” Colbeck said. “The risk has been steadily escalating over the past century but has reached alarming levels in recent years. Thankfully, many Americans are waking up and taking a stand.

“Tomorrow, people of faith will be holding a ‘Religious Liberty Rally’ on the Capitol steps. Throughout the state, people of faith are waking up and reaffirming the fundamental right upon which all other rights rest: the freedom of religion.

“Our Constitution ensures the freedom of religion, not the freedom from religion.”
