House Passage of RFRA All About Politics, Not Good Policy

LANSING — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding the Michigan House passing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act:

“The idea that we need to ‘restore’ religious freedom — rights that are already enshrined in the U.S. Constitution — is a farce created by conservative lawmakers for the sole purpose of appeasing their far-right donors and the religious-right,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “This extreme bill attempts to solve a problem that does not exist, promotes discrimination and does nothing to make Michigan a better place to live.”
