Welcome to the J. Reuben Clark Law Society Religious Freedom Committee’s beta site promoting religious freedom. Do you have suggestions to improve this site or would you like to help with it? Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The J. Reuben Clark Law Society affirms the strength brought to the law by a lawyer's personal, religious conviction. In doing so, we implicitly affirm the great importance of religious liberty to the rule of law. Without religious liberty, religious conviction is relegated to the shadows. We therefore appreciate efforts to strengthen religious freedoms for all faiths.. We are encouraged to serve in the communities in which we live and to join forces with other like-minded individuals and groups to educate, inform and remind lawyers, decision makers and others of the critical importance of religious liberty to the existence of all free societies..
At the 2013 J. Reuben Clark Law Society Annual Conference, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland challenged members of the Society "to defend, to advocate, to plead, and to appeal for…great faith…strong families…and religious freedom." The purpose of the Religious Freedom Committee is to help members of the Society fulfill this challenge by leading, educating, empowering, organizing and inspiring members of the Society to promote religious freedom in their respective communities. We invite members of the Society to be anxiously engaged in this good cause and to work in harmony with other like-minded individuals and organizations towards promoting religious freedom.
