There is a push for a religious rights (Christian)bill to pass. One question, can you legislate something that Christ already provided, which was true freedom. Can you imagine the first century Church asking the Roman government for permission to believe Jesus. Is the problem really those who push for this bill truly donít believe in Jesus, therefore have a form of godliness with no true power or influence. Why legislate when unbelief and lack of influence is the real issue.

You mean like the Founding Fathers that granted the freedom in the 1st Amendment?
