A Law for Religious Liberty

church1In a growing climate of intolerance against individuals and organizations who believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act (H.R. 3133) was introduced recently in the U.S. House of Representatives by Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID).

Among the many protections in this bill, the federal government would not be able to deny individuals and organizations a grant, contract, or employment because their belief in the historic wisdom and definition of marriage, as the union of one man and one woman, is informed by their religious faith.

This non-discrimination bill is of fundamental and federal importance, as increasingly such individuals and organizations are being targeted for discrimination by state governments. Our religious liberties are at stake.

Let us pray that this religious intolerance does not spread to the federal government.
