Congressman says he fights for public rights

To the editor: A recent writer apparently did not realize I have consistently fought to protect the First Amendment rights of religious broadcasters.

In fact, I was invited to speak at the National Association of Religious Broadcasters convention when it was in Charlotte.

Just as the writer and many others do in our area, I enjoy listening to Christian radio and regularly tune in as I travel through our district.

Freedom of information and speech are essential to our democracy, and that includes freedom of religious expression as well.

I will continue to fight for the right of religious expression in the marketplace of the public airwaves.
