Nov. 16, 1993: President Clinton champions the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA)

President Clinton champions the Religious Freedom Restoration Act

“Backed by a broad coalition of religious and civil liberties groups…

Congress passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. Lawmakers said they needed to restore the “compelling interest” test the Supreme Court rejected in its 1990 decision. Introduced by Democrats and passed with a near-unanimous vote, the legislation said a government can “substantially burden” a person’s exercise of religion only if it advances an important government interest and does so in the least restrictive way possible. When Clinton signed the bill, he said it “re-establishes a standard that better protects all Americans of all faiths in the exercise of their religion.” [source: USA Today

Every individual should have the right to believe, speak, and live according to their conscience.

Let’s Stand for the State of Georgia!

On February 25, 1997, the Supreme Court ruled that the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act doesn’t apply to states. Therefore, it is up to each state to adopt RFRA individually.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: Please encourage your state legislator to lead Georgia in joining 30 other states that have already agreed with the federal government and passed RFRA laws to protect everyone’s individual rights and freedoms.
