Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be honored by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty for “his lifelong contributions to advancing religious freedom.”

Elder Oaks will receive the organization’s Canterbury Medal, given each year to someone “who has resolutely and publicly refused to render to Caesar that which is God’s,” according to the organization's website.
