FL Governor Rick Scott Signs Pastor Protection Act
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
Florida Governor Rick Scott signs the Pastor Protection Act into law and the Georgia legislature has passed a similar law in that state. Now it is waiting for the Governor’s signature.
Mat Staver: Matt, in Florida the House and Senate passed this Pastor Protection Act. I was there and spoke at a rally outside of the House when they were actually deliberating and just passed it, and it moved over to the Senate, that same afternoon when I was there. Now it has gone to the Florida Governor’s desk and he has signed this into law. It’s called the Pastor Protection Act and it protects pastors and churches and other religious organizations from being forced to participate in a same-sex wedding ceremony or being forced to allow their facilities to be used for such ceremonies.
Matt Barber: Yea…this is good news. Anybody who believes in the Constitution, who supports the First Amendment, should support these religious freedom bills. Now, these pastor protection bills, I mean these are no-brainers. But the problem is, that we have counter-constitutional leftists and secularists attacking the First Amendment, attacking religious liberty. The First Amendment alone should be enough to protect pastors…
