27 Nov Should Congress Express Support for the Freedom of Conscience?
Freedom of conscience — which in the context of this bill can be understood to be interchangeable with freedom of religion — is enshrined in the First Amendment.
Those who are in favor say that the government should neither try to decide what religious beliefs are “correct” nor attempt to deny tax-exempt status to tax-exempt organizations that take specific public policy positions.
Opponents believe that Organizations that deny full human and civil rights to some people, or oppose settled policy on issues such as race or sexuality, shouldn’t be allowed to maintain their tax-exempt status.
