Preserve Religious Freedom
 

Faithbase organizations ought to be able to make decisions that are consistent with their beliefs.  To take this right away from churches (especially the Catholic Church, which I personally speak to) would be tragic on many levels.  The Church has more ministries that help citizens outside it's belief system than any other.  To force it's various organizations to comply to regulations that oppose that belief system and thus likely force many of those charity based organizations to shut down would be wrong. 

Remember we fight for freedom OF religion not freedom FROM religion.

Please uphold the right of faith-based agencies to continue their great work without government intrusion.
