Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Honoring Pastors Moulton And Judith Esdaille February 2, 2015
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, religious institutions have the power to shape and bind a community in ways that can forever change their neighborhood for the better. That has been the case with the Mount Carmel Pentecostal Church in the Bronx, which celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2014."
The Progressive Caucus September 10, 2014
Charles Rangel, D-NY
"It seems to me that it goes beyond just doing the right and the moral thing. Even churches and synagogues and mosques should recognize that their membership is going down because you can’t pay the rent, buy the food, and still give your money to the religious institutions."
Not My Boss’S Business Act July 15, 2014
Mark Udall, D-CO
"I have heard the arguments from those who say the Supreme Court’s decision narrowly protects religious freedom. I think we can all agree that where religious freedoms are being threatened, we as Americans have a duty to act swiftly to address it. But the fact is that actual religious institutions are already exempt from requirements that run contrary to their beliefs. Remember, the men and women who went to work for Hobby Lobby signed up to work at a craft store, not a religious organization."
Religious Freedom July 7, 2014
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"My alma mater, one of those institutions, Wheaton College, was told by the Supreme Court only last week that it doesn’t have to abide by the contraceptive coverage mandate until the judicial system determines whether the administration’s requirement is valid over religious institutions and other nonprofits."
Honoring Riverdale Jewish Center June 11, 2014
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, religious institutions often play a major role in our communities, by fostering spiritual development and offering solace to those in need. I am pleased to recognize Riverdale Jewish Center, one of the leading Modern Orthodox synagogues in my Congressional district as they celebrate their 60th Anniversary."
