Beto won’t be President, but his thoughts on religious freedom…
Well, that’s a real possibility.
At the recent Democrat presidential forum on catering to sexual immorality and biological hostility, Beto O’Rourke once again made an effort to gain traction in the polls by promising to violate constitutional rights – threatening to take away tax exempt status for religious organizations that believed in the definition of marriage that existed for thousands of years rather than the court-mandated one that has been around for four.
Now, let’s be honest. Beto O’Rourke is a sideshow who has no chance of being President of the United States.
But, his viewpoints, while absurd, represent a threat to take seriously – particularly in Georgia. You see, in our state, federal prisoners have their religious freedom protected to a higher degree than you and I sitting in our homes, operating our businesses, or attending our churches. Because our state lacks RFRA protections, the courts will view your religious freedom as a second-class right – one the state is not required to have a compelling interest to override.
In this, Georgia is among the minority of states without these fundamental protections – to the left of states like Illinois and Connecticut and on the same page as California, New York, and Vermont.
On top of the current condition of religious freedom in our state, we know that there is an intense effort to lurch our state even further to the Left. Just recently, Fake Governor Stacey Abrams lied about Real Governor Brian Kemp when she said he wanted to “sign discrimination into law,” simply because he values the First Amendment rights we are, supposedly, guaranteed in this country.
And, while Stacey Abrams holds no office, she is the leader of Georgia’s socialist movement – one vowing to take the Georgia State House in 2020. We cannot let this happen!
So, what can we do?
- Spread the message to your fellow congregants that we need to take threats like Beto’s seriously, especially here in Georgia
- Talk to your representatives about the need to bring religious freedom legislation to a vote when presented with the opportunity and to vote YES to protect our First Amendment (enter your zip code and/or address to find their contact information)
- Engage in the upcoming elections by mobilizing to support pro-freedom candidates and opposing those who believe biblical truths are discrimination and worthy of taxation
As a father of 3 boys, I am fearful of a world where biblical beliefs lead to taxation and hostility from the government. To protect their future, we must take the threat seriously and act quickly to secure this fundamental right. The next generation is counting on us to stand firm and take action!
For Our Faith,
President and Executive Director
P.S. We are leading the charge for our values in Georgia, but we are going toe to toe with Hollywood, big corporate, and anti-Constitution leftists like Beto and Stacey. Your support today helps fund strongest pro-family lobbying and election push Georgia has ever seen to fight for our freedom!
