Preserve Religious Freedom

To the State Board of Social Services:

Please affirm your decision to empower faith-based and other agencies to continue the great work they do for our community, free from interference from government power. In particular, church-run and faith-founded institutions should continue to have the God-given right to exercise their faith without government dictating policies that run counter to church teachings. Keep questions of sexual orientation or "family life-style" out of any governmental discrimination language and regulations. This action will keep government out of the moral decisions rightly left to churches, their congregations, and the agencies they sponsor to aid our community. Thank you.
