SESSIONS: "Mr. Chairman, religious freedom is a great heritage of America. We respect people’s religion. We encourage them to express themselves and to develop their relationships with the higher power as they choose. We respect that as mandated in the Constitution. But there are situations in which I believe we can reach accommodations that would allow the religious beliefs of persons to be honored in some fashion as opposed to just dictating everything under single provision or policy. So I believe you’re correct. We should recognize religious freedom. It will be a very high priority of mine."
