The video below explains in everyday language why the citizens of Georgia need RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) to protect our religious freedoms. Please watch it and then share it.
Thirty one states already have such a law to protect the religious freedom of their citizens from oppressive state, county and local municipality actions. A federal law already exists (enacted almost unanimously in 1993) that protects our Religious Freedom at the federal level. However, the federal law does not extend protections to the states. In March of 2016, bowing to pressure from misguided corporations and the LGBT community, Georgia’s Governor Nathan Deal vetoed the RFRA bill which had been overwhelmingly passed by the Georgia House and Senate. This is serious business. Our religious freedoms, guaranteed by our US Constitution, are under continuous attack by our increasingly secular society. Josh McKoon does a great job in explaining why RFRA is needed in Georgia. It is critical for people of Faith to speak up and let our voices be heard.
