"We need to render unto Caesar those things that bear his
image. But we need to render ourselves unto God -- generously, zealously,
holding nothing back. To the extent we let God transform us into his own image,
we will – by the example of our lives – fulfill our duty as citizens of the
United States, but much more importantly, as disciples of Jesus Christ."
Regardless of your tradition, we invite all people of faith to join in prayer and in a great national campaign of teaching and witness for religious liberty. This may take on many forms as there are beautiful religious traditions in our country and will itself serve as a sign of the religious diversity that flows from religious freedom and that makes our country great.
