Pope calls for defense of religious freedom

Pope Francis passes the crowd in his popemobile on Independence Mall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 26, 2015Pope Francis paid tribute Saturday to America’s defense of basic freedoms, especially religious liberty, and urged immigrants not to be discouraged by the “challenges and hardships” they face in the United States. Francis addressed a crowd of tens of thousands — some waving Vatican flags — gathered outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were both debated and signed.
