How to get religious freedom if you want it

If you’re looking to get your religious freedom restored under a new bill that would give the government authority to revoke religious affiliation certificates, you might want to look to the major religions.

The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), the largest Christian denomination in the U.S., filed a brief supporting the bill Thursday.

The NAE argues that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act “would give Congress the authority to deny the right to a person to profess, practice, or observe a religion in violation of the Constitution, statutes, or constitutional rights of others.”

In the brief, the NAE says it would “allow the government to compel the exercise of religious beliefs on behalf of a person who is a member of one of the major religious traditions.”

The NAEs brief argues that these faith-based efforts would not violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

It goes on to say that the bill “would protect religious believers from being compelled to act against their religious beliefs, such as the practice of abortion, or to abstain from participating in any activity that violates their religious convictions.”

The bill has been referred to the House Committee on Rules, which is chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).

But Jordan’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The House will vote on the bill at 10 a.m.

ET on Thursday.
