Yesterday, the full House voted along party lines to pass the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, only hours after it was reported from committee.
If the Senate fails to stop this poorly written bill, people will be able to take advantage and claim that their religion gives them the right to ignore critical laws – laws that protect against child labor, domestic violence and discrimination.
Freedom of religion is one of our fundamental rights as Americans. That’s why it’s well protected in the state and federal constitutions. This legislation wouldn't restore any lost freedom. Instead, it would put an individual’s religious beliefs ahead of the common good.
It's crucial that we tell our senators that religion should never be used as an excuse to harm others.
