As former Arkansas Governor and 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee launched his “Religious Liberty Town Hall” tour Monday he released his plan for how his administration would protect religious liberty from “Day One.”

His tour included stops in Council Bluffs, Sioux City and Cherokee on Wednesday, and concludes with stops in Ft. Dodge, Dubuque and Burlington today.

Huckabee’s plan includes three different parts:

  1. Sign executive orders in support of traditional marriage that protect businesses, churches, non-profits, schools and universities, hospitals, and other organizations from discrimination, intimidation, or civil or criminal penalties for exercising their religious beliefs.
  2. Direct the Attorney General to protect religious liberty and aggressively prosecute any violations of First Amendment rights of individuals, businesses, religious organizations, institutions and civil servants, including those who believe in traditional marriage.  The Justice Department will protect and defend the rights of American citizens to follow their religious convictions without discrimination and prosecute attacks on all people of faith and their religious liberty as hate crimes.
  3. Direct the Secretary of Defense to support military chaplains to exercise their faith and not force them to participate in ceremonies they find objectionable on religious grounds. People of faith will not be punished for serving their country and sacrificing to keep us free.

“While some cowardly politicians wave the white flag and surrender to this unconstitutional, out-of-control act of judicial tyranny, I reject this decision and will fight from ‘Day One’ of my administration to defend our Constitution and protect religious liberty,” Huckabee said.
