Kentucky House Passes Bill That Strengthens Religious Protections

On Friday the Kentucky House passed a bill that will provide better protection against government intrusion into religious matters.

By a vote of 82-7, the house offers citizens a stronger position to resist government attempts to force mandates that go against the beliefs of their religious practices and beliefs.

Fears some could abuse the new law are unwarranted, according to Addia Wuchner, R-Burlington, who said those existing laws that are challenged which the government is able to prove are there for a legitimate reason would remain in place.

What the law does is make the courts apply a higher standard and level of scrutiny to those federal laws that are claimed by people to be against their religion.
