Santorum Condemns City of Houston for Violating First Amendment Rights

Verona, PA - Former Presidential candidate, U.S. Senator and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum issued the following statement today regarding the actions by the City of Houston to violate our First Amendment:

Rick Santorum said, "Many say fighting to protect our First Amendment is a conservative issue.  It is not.  It is an American issue.  Regardless of one's religious or political views, we should be extremely alarmed that any government in our country would issue subpoenas to see if what an American citizen has said meets their threshold of acceptable speech.  That is not America." 

"The constant drumbeat to weaken our First Amendment is real, and if we - Republicans and Democrats - don't stand up to stop it, we'll look back years from now and wonder what happened to our country," Santorum concluded.

Rick Santorum has long been a champion to protect our First Amendment rights.  He authored the Workplace Religious Freedom Act which protects citizens' religious beliefs in the workplace. EchoLight Studios, of which he is CEO, has a film out, "One Generation Away," that highlights the erosion of religious liberties.  Watch a trailer here.

I gave prominent mention of this matter in my “Render Unto Caesar” Homily this morning. Should I send it to Houston or await a subpoena? :)
