Religious Liberty Expert Statement Regarding Passage of Respect for Marriage Act
Washington, D.C.—The following statement regarding the “Respect for Marriage Act,” passed by Congress, may be attributed to Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO, and Chief Counsel for First Liberty Institute:
Congress just passed a law that punishes the free exercise of religion. The so-called “Respect for Marriage Act” lets radical activists harass faith-based institutions in court because of their religious beliefs about marriage. No American should be punished for holding a faith-based view on marriage, even if that view conflicts with the government’s current preferred definition. And, no American should change their religious convictions about marriage just because a few politicians changed theirs.
