Today we are all Hoosiers

We can't take for granted our freedom of religion; the freedom to believe and to live according to those beliefs. Given to us by God, and recognized by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, religious freedom is crucial to the life of our democracy. If the government punishes people for living their faith, there are no limits to what government can control.

If religious freedom falls in one state, it is endangered everywhere. Where states and leaders advance religious liberty, we need to encourage them to stand. Please read the following petition in support of Indiana Governor Mike Pence, and if you agree, please join me in signing it. Those who stand for freedom need others to stand with them.

Indiana Governor Mike Pence recently signed into law a Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) that protects people who live their daily lives according to their faith against government discrimination. This law reflects polling that shows 81% of Americans support the freedom to live out one's beliefs. The Indiana law is like the federal RFRA that was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1993, and RFRAs in 19 other states.

FRC Statement on Governor Mike Pence's Proposed Change to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act

Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins released the following statement in response to Indiana Governor Mike Pence's news conference this morning:
 
 "The governor addressed the complete falsehood that RFRA is about denying people a seat in a restaurant or a room at a hotel. Christians would never deny people these services but being forced to participate in a ceremony that violates religious beliefs is completely un-American and uncivil...
 
"RFRAs are not intended to nor have they ever been used to deny anyone non-religious goods or services. We support such a clarification making clear RFRA does not impact non-religious goods or services."

Psychological Association Delivers 'Snake Oil' Sociology In Latest Brief on Marriage

by Ken Blackwell

Ken Blackwell is Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Christian Post on March 27, 2015. The American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Sociological Association (ASA) submitted friend of the Court briefs in the Windsor case. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled portions of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional. If the Windsor Court majority relied on those briefs, it was reliant on snake oil, not science. The APA and the ASA should be the guardians of ... (more)

How are clergy protected from being forced to perform same-sex marriages?

by Travis Weber

Federal-Level Protections Churches and ministers have solid protection under the First Amendment. At time of publication, there is no appreciable risk that clergy would be compelled by a court to host or perform a same-sex ceremony. Federal Constitution The First Amendment - Free Exercise and Establishment Clause In Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church & Sch. v. E.E.O.C., 132 S. Ct. 694 (2012), the Supreme Court held that "religious organizations" are protected in being able to hire and fire the ministers they want under the ... (more)
