President Dallin H. Oaks, first counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, offered a keynote address at the 2022 Notre Dame Religious Liberty Summit, held in Rome, Italy, on July 20, 2022.

Calling for “a global effort to defend and advance the religious freedom of all the children of God in every nation of the world,” President Oaks suggested steps to promote religious liberty.

This Church News video, titled “Understanding Religious Freedom,” features President Oaks’ plea to find the middle ground on this important issue.

“We need to treat religious freedom in the context of the laws of the country, because God established the governments of men as well as the governments of God,” he said. “It is short sighted of religions and religious believers to believe that their particular values, as important and God given as they are, should be dominant over every other concern of other children of God.”
