Preserve Religious Freedom

That religious individuals and religious organizations should have the right to live and work in accord with their beliefs is not optional; it is a Constitutional requirement.   Not only should religious social service agencies not be penalized for living up to their beliefs, they should be honored for all the services they provide to individuals and to communities in our state and our nation.  Those who disagree with the beliefs and principles of religious organizations are free to set up their own agencies but they are not free to prevent religious groups from functioning.
