Friday, the Trump administration reversed Obama-era policies with new legal guidance issued to the Department of Justice by Attorney General Jeff Sessions regarding religious liberty.

Sessions issued guidance to all administrative agencies and executive departments regarding religious liberty protections in federal law.

“Our freedom as citizens has always been inextricably linked with our religious freedom as a people,” Sessions said. “It has protected both the freedom to worship and the freedom not to believe. Every American has a right to believe, worship, and exercise their faith. The protections for this right, enshrined in our Constitution and laws, serve to declare and protect this important part of our heritage.”

Saturday, August 26, 2017, Alabama Attorney General candidate Sam McLure spoke to the Alabama Constitution Party at their summer meeting in Prattville’s Islamorada Fish Company Restaurant at Bass Pro Shop.

McLure said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. (Dietrich Bonhoeffer a German pastor and theologian who was killed in 1945 for opposing Nazi Germany).  If you are not willing to die for your political beliefs then get another hobby. Thievery and murder are the order of the day. Tyranny is not the greatest enemy of freedom, apathy is. I long for the day when Alabamians are more concerned about being on the wrong side of eternity rather than being on the wrong side of history.”

Wednesday, June 14, 2017, Scott Dawson sat down with The Alabama Political Reporter (APR) to discuss his bid for the 2018 Republican Party nomination for Governor.

APR: Former Governor Bentley wanted to borrow $800 million to build four new mega prisons. Do you support Bentley’s prison plan?

Dawson: When was the last time we spent a large chunk of money on education, or on infrastructure? To me every crime must have a consequence, but ultimately prisons are bigger than buildings. It is about people. Reforming those prisoners so they don’t come back to prison should be discussed when we talk about prison reform. We need prisoner reform. Don’t be slack on crime, but moms are not praying for bigger prisons moms are praying that their sons to change.
