“The First Amendment right of free speech and right to practice any faith, or no faith, are foundational American values that must extend to everyone…” – Member of the Congressional Prayer Caucus
Federal Legislation: Let’s pray the filibuster stays intact as is and that the senate is a firewall against all bills and language – all efforts – to undermine our Constitutional Republic, Judeo-Christian Heritage, and First Amendment Rights.
The Supreme Court has accepted another same-sex marriage vendor case from Colorado. In this case, 303 Creative, a designer wishes to prepare web sites for heterosexual marriages but not for same-sex marriages. The state said she could not do that consistently with the pubic accommodations law that prohibits discrimination against sexual orientation, and the Tenth Circuit, 2-1, upheld the state. The Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether, by forcing her to associate and foster a message with which she disagrees, the web-site designer’s free speech rights would be violated. The case will be argued and decided next term.
Recently, Biden announced a Resolution on the ERA and called on Congress to take action. On March 17, 2021, the House passed H. J. Res. 17 to remove the deadline for the ratification of the ERA. A companion resolution (S. J. Res. 1) awaits further action in the Senate Judiciary Committee. There’s many concerns about the future of conscience and religious freedom, should this Constitutional Amendment advance federally or at the state level.
Religious Liberty Legislation: Continue praying consistently and fervently for the successful passage of legislation that effectively protects our Judeo-Christian heritage and First Amendment Rights. Also, pray that bills and resolutions that undermine our Rights will be unsuccessful.
