Target: Religious freedom from CenterForArizonaPolicy
A leaked Health and Human Services memo reportedly indicates Secretary Xavier Becerra is considering revoking the authority of the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) to prevent violations of religious rights.
The Trump Administration had beefed up protections under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) designed to prohibit the federal government from infringing on religious freedoms.
The memo reportedly states HHS intends to bring religious organizations under so-called “nondiscrimination” requirements, which means religious organizations will be forced to embrace the LGBTQ agenda, regardless of their religious beliefs.
Also, last week I spelled out some of the dangerous pitfalls hidden inside the $1.7 trillion social spending bill. In addition to incentivizing government-run childcare over private care or parents caring for their own children, the Administration’s plan is a direct threat to religious freedom.
It would change the way religious organizations receive federal money, thereby forbidding them to function consistent with their own beliefs if those beliefs run contrary to the LGBTQ agenda. Read or listen here for more details.
