A New York moment:
Last week, Catholics, Mormons, Protestants, Native Americans in full ceremonial feather regalia, and others swished into the Pierre Hotel on Fifth Avenue for Becket Law’s annual gala. The party celebrates an individual who has defended religious liberty in the United States—this year, Becket’s Canterbury Medal went to U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black, who has been in his post for 16 years and opens each daily session of the Senate with prayer.
