The First Amendment Defense Act Should Not Protect Multiple Views of MarriageBy Family Research Council
Since the introduction of the First Amendment Defense Act (“FADA”), Family Research Council has been a strong supporter, advocating for co-sponsorship, a hearing, and markup on the bill. Even after the language was significantly narrowed in September of 2015, FRC maintained its support and encouraged other groups to advocate for action on the bill. In fact, in February FRC led a coalition letter signed by almost one hundred different organizations endorsing the September-released language and calling for a vote on that language. Unfortunately, the latest revisions to FADA have forced FRC to withdraw its support of the bill.
