Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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."
Honoring Bishop C. Nathan Edwers June 11, 2014
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, religious institutions often play a major role in inspiring communities to provide comfort for its most vulnerable residents and to serve all of mankind. Religious leaders such as Bishop C. Nathan Edwers do more than say prayers—they offer a path to practice one’s faith in the community through social justice."
Honoring Temple Israel Of New Rochelle June 10, 2014
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, New Rochelle, a community in my Congressional district, celebrates a wonderful blend of cultures. It is a symbol of our nation’s cultural past and bright future, a nation that when united we can overcome incredible challenges in the service of others. However, such a future would not be possible without the support of religious institutions which work tirelessly in the service of individuals who experience hardships, and to bridge the divides that sometimes exist within our communities."
