The Aug. 25 Republican National Convention theme was “land of opportunity” and religious freedom was a big part of that.

“To all houses of worship and to all people of faith, stripped of our religious freedoms and religious liberties – my father will fight for you,” said Eric Trump, son of President Donald Trump.

Cissie Graham Lynch, Reverend Billy Graham’s granddaughter, claimed that the left has tried to silence the religious.

“Even during the pandemic, we saw how quickly life could change,” Cissie said. “Some Democrat leaders banned church services while marijuana shops and abortion clinics were declared “essential.”

Abortion was a big topic of the night. Former Planned Parenthood employee – turned anti-abortion activist Abby Johnson – rallied voters to get behind President Trump.

“He has done more for the unborn than any other president … during his first month in office, he banned federal funds for global health groups that promote abortion,” Abby said.

Nicholas Sandmann, the Covington Catholic teen who attended the March For Life rally in Washington D.C. in 2019 and was caught on video during an encounter with protesters on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, spoke out about “cancel culture.” 

“Cancelled is what’s happening to people around this country who refuse to be silenced by the far left,” Nicholas said. “Many are being fired, humiliated or even threatened.”

First Lady Melania Trump spoke from the Rose Garden and reached out to women voters while making a case for her husband.

“Just as you are fighting for your families, my husband, our family, and the people in this administration are here fighting for you,” Melania said.

The president’s daughter Tiffany Trump graduated from law school during the pandemic. She made an appeal to young voters.

“My father built a thriving economy once, and believe me, he will do it again,” Tiffany said.
