It is a real pleasure to be part of this year’s Religious Liberty Dinner.
This is a marquee event on the calendar for those who care about human rights and, especially, freedom of religion.
So I would like to thank the organizers and their team for the invitation to be a part of tonight.
I love being here in Washington.
This is a capital city that embodies the hopes and aspirations of a truly great nation—even in times of political gridlock.
The United States, of course, is a country built on the very notion of religious freedom.
