EDITORIAL: State Religious Freedom Restoration Acts Threaten True Religious Liberty

By Sally Steenland

The current debate about religious freedom is already shaping laws and policies that will affect each one of us.

That’s because the laws and policies in question go too far. They promote a kind of religious freedom on steroids, a muscular bullying that aims to get its way regardless of the harm or cost it may inflict on others.

But one can support religious freedom and oppose that kind of harm at the same time.

Get up to speed on the issues with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana and other states across the country.
