This is important. Every bit as important as protecting the freedoms guaranteed in other Amendments or the Constitution itself. As always, I invite you to read more of his speech or at least the summary of it here.

Elder Dallin H. Oaks receives the Canterbury Medal
An apostle for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Elder Dallin H. Oaks, received the highest honor from the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. Before he served as an apostle, he was a lawyer, a judge in the Utah Supreme Court, and the president of Brigham Young University. He consistently teaches members and whoever else is in his path about things related to both law and religion, such as protecting children as the voiceless victims in our societies across the world. Here is an excerpt from Deseret News about his speech about religious freedom given in accepting the Canterbury Medal.
