Yvette Herrell on Principles & Values

 

 


It's time we get God back in the conversation

I grew up in a Christian home and my relationship with God has given me the ability to develop a moral compass and convictions that have provided me the strength, knowledge and courage to live unashamedly for God. Whether making personal decisions or casting a vote, I am grateful that each decision is given prayerful consideration and in a context that is morally sound and biblically based. As I have said repeatedly during this campaign, "It's time we get God back in the conversation."

There is no constitutional separation of church and state

There is no constitutional separation of church and state, and the establishment clause in the 1st Amendment was intended to protect the church from the influence or control of the government. Any honest reading of the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and other writings of the Founders serves to clearly demonstrate that they sought divine inspiration in establishing this nation and recognized their and our dependence on God.

I am a biblical and constitutional conservative

I am a biblical conservative and a constitutional conservative. I believe strongly in the Judeo-Christian principles upon which our nation was founded, and my Christian faith and biblical worldview serve to direct me on a daily basis. I believe strongly in a strict originalist interpretation of the Constitution, and that we must diligently seek to adhere to the intent of our Founders regarding the scope of powers and actions of the federal government.

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)

Oppose certification of the 2020 Presidential election.

Herrell voted YEA blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
