Why I support The Free Speech Fairness Act – Reason #6

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others, and in public or in private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

-Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Aids to Reflection, 1825

“I take every moment singly as it comes, for this is within my power. The past does not
belong to me; the future is not mine; with all my soul I try to make use of the
present moment.”
– St. Faustina

Joel 2:13

Rend your hearts, not your garments,

and return to the LORD, your God,

For he is gracious and merciful,

slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love,

and relenting in punishment.
