In an interview published by Religious Freedom Center, Rev. Susan Taylor, Public Affairs Director of the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office in Washington, D.C., spoke of the importance the Scientology religion places on religious freedom.
She points out that security in your own faith makes it possible to reach out to others about their beliefs and concerns.
A Scientologist since 1969, Rev. Taylor has been active in interfaith dialogue since the late 1970s.
Ms. Taylor was featured August 9 on Newseum’s “5 Minutes of Religious Freedom,” a web series about religious freedom—liberty of conscience—as a precious, fundamental right for people of all religions and none.
The web series features religious and civil liberties leaders from around the world who represent a broad spectrum of religious and ideological perspectives.
Religious Freedom Center holds that “there is an urgent need to work together to sustain the world’s bold experiment in living with our deepest differences. In the United States, for instance, many people are misled about the constitutional role of religion in public life, confused about the meaning of church-state separation, and uncertain about the limits of free exercise of religion. The purpose of this series is to feature a diversity of perspectives about the constitutional and human rights principles that govern the relationship of religion and government, define protections for the freedom of religion or belief, and provide the civic framework for living among people of all religions and none.”
