Governor Pence Signs Senate Bill 101!
On Thursday, March 26th Governor Mike Pence signed Senate Bill 101 into law!
Senate Bill 101 is the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Indiana now becomes the 20th state with a Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Eric Miller, the Founder and Executive Director of Advance America stated: “It is vitally important to protect religious freedom in Indiana. It’s the right thing to do. It was therefore important to pass Senate Bill 101 in 2015 in order to help protect churches, Christian businesses and individuals from those who want to punish them because of their Biblical beliefs!”
Churches, Christian businesses and individuals deserve protection from those who support homosexual marriages and those who support government recognition and approval of gender identity (men who dress as women). SB 101 will help provide the protection!
Here are just three examples where SB 101 will help:
- Christian bakers, florists and photographers should not be punished for refusing to participate in a homosexual marriage!
- A Christian business should not be punished for refusing to allow a man to use the women’s restroom!
- A church should not be punished because they refuse to let the church be used for a homosexual wedding!
