Opportunity Knocking for Indiana

As many of us know, the next legislative session begins in January. Indiana Family Institute and many affiliated elected officials are proposing legislation that will bring similar federal religious protection to the state level. In 1993, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act was passed protecting citizens from laws that placed substantial burden on their free practice of religion. Indiana does not have their own Religious Freedom Restoration Act like many other states. The absence of such a State Act has allowed many municipalities to intrude on individual practice of religion, especially when it comes to businesses.

Contributing to this effort requires sharing this information with friends, family and fellow church members, calling and emailing your respective elected officials and donating to organizations like the Indiana Family Institute. With these contributions we can enact policy that will prevent incidents that have happened here and nationwide. Below are the links to specific cases that are similar to the countless tales we have heard in the past few years. It is not too late to make a tax deductible contribution for the 2014 tax year.
