State legislators attempt to protect traditional values

Under House Bill 1523, State officials, private business owners,and others who provide services to the public couldn’t be punished for acting on deeply held religious beliefs.  The bill specifically protects individuals and organizations for acting upon the following “religious beliefs or moral convictions:”

  1. Marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman.
  2. Sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage.
  3. Male (man) or female (woman) refer to an individual’s immutable biological sex as objectively determined by anatomy and genetics at time of birth.

The bill would prevent the state government from taking any legal action against any religious organization, state employees, or other persons for acting in a manner consistent with these beliefs.
