State Policy Brief: Government Nondiscrimination Acts

Family Research Council recommends and supports government nondiscrimination acts (GNDAs) as an effective means of ensuring Americans are never penalized for affirming biblical teachings on marriage and sexuality. No government entity in the United States should legally penalize beliefs in natural marriage, marital monogamy, or biological sex.

Key Points:

  • No government entity in the United States should legally penalize beliefs in natural marriage, marital monogamy, or biological sex.
  • GNDAs protect individuals and entities by prohibiting the state from taking adverse action against them on account of their religious beliefs or moral convictions related to marriage and sexuality.
  • GNDAs also create a private right of action for individuals whose religious freedom rights have been violated by the government.
