Montana Family Foundation Comments
If the founders of our great nation wanted the government to regulate church ministries, they would not have written the First Amendment. The principle of Religious Freedom is precious and indispensable to the functioning of our society. We must defend it from government overreach like this.
This bill was tabled by the House Judiciary Committee.
