RFRA: What is it?

March 24, 2015 • Category: Justice

You’ve probably heard about the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, SB101, which recently made its way through the Indiana Legislature and is expected to be signed into law by our governor. And you’ve probably heard our church’s position on this bill–it is bad policy. The entire purpose of this bill is to sanction discrimination under the safety net of religious freedom. Make no mistake, this bill brings about anything but religious freedom.

So what do we do now? The most important things we can do is continue to pressure our elected officials and to vote every time you have the chance. But we can also take action by supporting groups like OpenforService.org. Encourage businesses you frequent to register with this organization to build a database for business who refuse to discriminate.

In the event, you experience discrimination in the name of misguided religious freedom, contact the Indiana Civil Liberties Union and speak to an attorney. The best place to challenge this ungodly law will be in the courts. If you need information about how to do that, feel free to speak to a member of pastoral staff.  You may also contact us through this form.

Know your rights and stand strong. Together, we will see the day when this is overturned!
