Arkansas governor signs bill protecting freedom from government coercion

Thursday, April 02, 2015

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Jim Campbell regarding Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s decision Thursday to sign a religious freedom bill into law:

“Government should protect people’s freedom to follow their beliefs in their lives and work. We commend the governor’s decision to support a law that does this. Government shouldn’t be able to punish Americans for exercising basic civil rights. Religious freedom laws ensure that freedom gets a fair hearing, and they limit the government’s power to intrude on our liberties. We hope other states join Arkansas and many others in adopting similar laws.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
