"The bill is called the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act. But this act is neither free nor fair for people of religious convictions. Because the general assembly left out specific protections for individuals, businesses, religious organizations, and religious charities, we will have to discover the boundaries of this act through litigation. The idea that free people can be 'compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives' as the 'price of citizenship' is a chilling and unprecedented attack on freedom, This affects believers in myriad ways -- how they live out their faith, how they educate their children, and how they operate their businesses." - Peter Breen, senior counsel of the Thomas More Society, via press release.
