Heritage Foundation on Families & Children

 


Make room in public for practice of religious faith

Family and religion are foundational to American freedom and the common good. For example, the married family plays an important part in promoting economic opportunity. Religious institutions and individuals form the backbone of civil society, providing for the welfare of individuals more effectively than government-funded programs can. Yet policy at the federal, state, and local levels, coupled with social developments, has helped to undermine their important contributions.

Despite the societal benefits of religion, the expression of faith in the public square has faced many challenges. The law ought to make as much room as possible for the practice of religious faith. In addition, to win hearts and minds, advance freedom, and promote stability, U.S. foreign policy and public diplomacy should systematically engage the role of religion and religious audiences.
