IL Review: Legal Experts Conclude IL SSM Bill Worst in U.S. in Protecting Religious Liberty


Illinois Review:

Experts in the law have concluded that the pending Illinois same-sex marriage bill would be the worst in the U.S. in protecting religious liberty.

Writing on behalf of legal experts from around the country, Thomas Brejcha, President & Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Society, and Peter Breen, the firm's Vice President & Senior Counsel sent a letter to Illinois state representatives today explaining the danger Illinois' same-sex marriage bill (SB10) poses to individual religious liberty and freedom of conscience.

    I don't understand why our beliefs are subject to "public accommodation laws" which blatantly violate the 1st amendment.

    Aren't the things that the Thomas More Center complains about really issue that it has with Illinois' public accommodation and non-discrimination laws? Some of the examples they cited were in states that don't even have SSM, like NJ and NM. SB10 is no different from the civil unions law already in place in regards to 'religious liberty'.
