The B.C. Catholic has a Catholic News Agency story about religious freedom being a major theme in the Republican Party's new platform:

The U.S. Republican Party included a significant section on the importance of religious freedom in its new official platform, adopted Aug. 28 in Tampa, Fla.
"We pledge to respect the religious beliefs and rights of conscience of all Americans and to safeguard the independence of their institutions from government," stated the 2012 Republican platform, which was formally approved at the party's national convention.
The party explained that its positions respect "God-given individual rights," including the freedom "of every American to follow his or her beliefs."
