Preserve Religious Freedom

Faith based agencies have a right to make decisions that are consistent with their beliefs.  If you continue to take away these rights, then all those people that are helped by these faith based agencies and programs will be handed off to the state or federal (bankrupt) government and likely get no assistance. Religious liberty is foundational to this country!!

Many religious and or faith based organizations provide sensible and hopeful assistance to those that find that they need help and also want to abide by their religious beliefs.

Do what is right and preserve religious freedom before we come to a point in the country where religion is no longer freely exercised.  Our founding fathers never sought to supress religion, they sought to protect it from an overbearing govenment.
