Attorney General Announces ‘Religious Liberty Task Force’

TIME: “American culture has become ‘less hospitable to people of faith,’ Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday in vowing that the Justice Department would protect people’s religious freedom and convictions.”

“[Sessions] also announced the creation of a ‘religious liberty task force’ to help implement that guidance and ensure that Justice Department employees are accommodating peoples’ religious beliefs.

Conservative groups immediately praised Sessions for promising to protect deeply held religious convictions, though Trump administration critics have repeatedly voiced concerns that the attorney general’s stance undercuts LGBT rights and favors the rights of Christians over those of other faiths.”
