Pence Speaks To National Catholic Prayer Breakfast

Yesterday Vice President Mike Pence delivered a lengthy address (full text) to the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C.  Here are a few excerpts from his remarks:
To all the great American Catholics gathered here, let me assure you this morning, bright and early at this prayer breakfast, American Catholics have an ally in President Donald Trump.  (Applause.) 
President Trump stands for the religious liberty of every American and the right of our people of faith to live out your convictions in the public square.
President Trump stands with those who are persecuted for their faith around the world -- no matter the country they call home or the creed they profess.
And President Donald Trump stands with the most vulnerable -- the aged, the infirm, and the unborn.  (Applause.) ....
Protecting and promoting religious freedom is a foreign-policy priority of this administration.  And we will continue to work with this Congress to stand without apology for persecuted people of faith across the globe.  We will continue to stand with our allies and take the fight to the terrorists on our terms, on their soil until we drive the cancer of terrorism from the face of the Earth.  (Applause.)....
Since day one of this administration, President Donald Trump has been keeping his promise to stand for life, and life is winning in America again.
