Georgia’s Freest Place: Prison

August 9

Want to have your religious freedom protected? Well, here in Georgia, the freest place for people of faith is in our prisons – where federal religious protections apply. There, convicted felons receive stronger protections than you, your pastor, business owners, and the students, teachers, and coaches that enter our schools.

As Georgia remains one of the minority of states around the country lacking Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) protections, Stacey Abrams and the radical leftists running around Georgia will aim to create false arguments around the issue leading into the fall. Don’t let your friends, family, or neighbors be fooled!

To help others learn the truth about what RFRA really is, help us by sharing the compelling informational video found HERE.

Lies abound in this debate, and the George Soros/Tom Steyer funded liberals campaigning against pro-family conservatives will argue that protecting the First Amendment rights of all Americans is somehow discrimination or anti-business. That’s utterly false! Electing leaders who will protect our most fundamental rights is beneficial to ALL Georgians- even those who disagree with us.

Legislative Update: Many of you rallied with us around SB 361, sponsored by Sen. Michael Williams, and its House version, HB 922 sponsored by Rep. Kasey Carpenter. This legislation is critical to securing religious freedom for students, teachers, and coaches- all of whom are being bullied into surrendering their First Amendment rights upon entering a school.

While we look forward to updating you regarding our continued push on this issue over the coming legislative session, we are also thrilled that Georgia was one of 13 states that filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in the case of Coach Joe Kennedy, who coaches football in Washington. Like many of the sources of inspiration here in Georgia, Coach Kennedy had his First Amendment rights stripped away simply because of his job. No American should ever be told that they cannot acknowledge their God!

The Freedom from Religion Foundation and the leftists that are trying to infiltrate Georgia will continue bullying school districts and faithful individuals until we act with strong legislation. We are thankful that Attorney General Chris Carr has positioned Georgia on the right side of this issue, but we are prayerful that we can pass legislation that protects religious freedom in schools and removes the need to continue litigating the issue in court.

Because the First Amendment is for Everyone,
