Faith and family are the backbones of our society and they should be protected. I grew up in the Christian faith and my family attends Concordia Lutheran Church. My wife Madeleine and I have been married for 15 years and we have 3 children. It saddens me to see religious liberties and family ideals under attack; not just by outside extremist groups, but also by our own local, state, and federal governments. I will fight in Congress to ensure that the legislatures intent on these matters are clear.
