JOE BIDEN/RELIGION: “As we set to work overcoming the pandemic, healing our divides, and building our nation back better in the days ahead, ensuring freedom of religion remains as important as ever. Our government must safeguard these bedrock protections — never favoring certain faiths or discriminating against particular religions, and never imposing religious tests for citizenship, public office, or entry into our country. We must be vigilant against the rising tide of targeted violence and hate at home and abroad, and work to ensure that no one feels afraid to attend a religious service, school, or community center, or walk down the street wearing the symbols of their faith.”
