Outrage! NEA Teachers’ Union to Vote Against RFRA
…Says Laws are A “License to Discriminate”
The National Education Association’s annual representative assembly, meeting this week in Orlando, will vote on Friday or Saturday to take a stand against religious freedom in America.
It’s just the latest in radical leftist political action by the nation’s largest union with approximately 3 million members. In many states, teachers are compelled to join the union in order to hold a job, so the NEA is already well acquainted with strong-arm tactics.
New Business Item A, submitted by the NEA Board of Directors itself, states:
“The NEA will develop educational materials for its state affiliates and members about the potential dangers of so-called ‘religious freedom restoration acts’ or RFRAs, which may license individuals and corporations to discriminate on the theory that their religious beliefs require such actions.
The materials will describe the current legal landscape at the federal and state level, provide model state legislative amendments to modify existing laws to prevent such discriminatory applications, provide talking points for advocacy, and link to existing resources for members and state affiliates to use in efforts to prevent the use of such laws as a license to discriminate.”
An accompanying rationale repeats the charge that First Amendment freedoms are a “license to discriminate,” and that this resolution is part of NEA’s efforts on “social justice.”
It was submitted by a Michigan delegate, Paula Herbart, who can be contacted at email@example.com

ACTION: Call your local school and leave this message: ” I am stunned and heartbroken that the National Education Association believes Americans don’t deserve religious freedom, and that we should be compelled to violate our consciences. How tragic that the millions of dollars in teachers’ dues are funding such anti-American, fascist policies here on Independence Day week-end. I suggest all of the teachers at our school disaffiliate from this destructive organization.”
And be sure to tell all the teachers and parents you know.
