COLORADO FREEDOM INSTITUTE
defending religious FREEDOM
America's Founding Fathers enshrined free speech and religious liberty in our First Amendment. They knew that these rights came from God, our Creator, not from government. The First Amendment of our Bill of Rights provides that:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Today in America, progressive forces seek to silence and marginalize people of faith by subverting the original meaning of the First Amendment. The argue that the First Amendment requires government to be hostile to religion and people of faith. While that is what is happening, that is simply false. The First Amendment, as well as Federal and state laws designed to protect religious liberty in America, has been intentionally misconstrued to subvert our First Amendment religious freedom to so-called sexual freedom rights and reproductive rights or a right to an abortion at taxpayer expense. Opponents of religious freedom have waged furious attacks against religious freedom over the last 8 years. The Colorado Freedom Institute is dedicated to the protection of the First Amendment and state and federal laws aimed at protecting religious freedom.
defending the sanctity of human life
The Colorado Freedom Institute promotes and defends the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death. Human beings are made in the image of God and are intrinsically valuable. Therefore, all human beings must be protected from those, including advocates of abortion and physician-assisted suicide, who seek to devalue life.
defending marriage and the family
America needs strong families in order for America to flourish. Children need Moms and Dads. But forces in America continually attempt to erode the foundations of family and marriage. School-age children are taught to challenge and abandon the faith of their parents. Informed consent laws are challenged, often successfully, in our courts. School choice is constantly attacked and children are trapped in underperforming or failing schools. Advocates of abortion encourage children to engage in promiscuous sexual behavior and to question their gender and sexual orientation. Parents and their children need strong legal protections. The Colorado Freedom Institute is dedicated to protecting families in the legal and legislative arena.
With your generous financial support, the Colorado Freedom Institute can work even harder to protect religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and marriage and family in Colorado and across America. Please go to our Donate page to give a generous gift to support our legal efforts. Thank you!
