During an appearance on Fox Business on Wednesday, former Vice President Mike Pence suggested that Americans can’t escape from having other people’s beliefs forced upon them, saying that the United States Constitution does not provide the right to “freedom from religion.”
The constitution states 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.”
The US constitution makes no references requiring individuals to subscribe to any particular denomination or to a supreme being. But that is not stopping Pence from trying to force his faith upon every American.
“The radical left believes that the freedom of religion is the freedom from religion. But it’s nothing the American founders ever thought of or generations of Americans fought to defend,” Pence told Fox Business host Larry Kudlow.
He added: “You know, I said today here in Houston that the source of our nation’s greatness has always been our faith in God, our freedom, and our vast natural resources. And the good news is, that after four years of the Trump-Pence administration.”
The former vice president also suggested that the Supreme Court’s right-wing supermajority has a duty to side with Christian nationalism.
“I’m confident that we have a pro-religious freedom majority on the Supreme Court of the United States. And I’m confident that come Election Day, November the 8th, you’re gonna see that freedom majority around the country turn out and vote pro-freedom majorities in the House, and in the Senate, and in statehouses around the country,” Pence said. “So stay tuned, Larry. Help is on the way.”
