Arizona’s primary election is less than four months away. It’s time to prepare. But first:
Capitol Update: Religious Freedom Victory!
Governor Ducey this week signed CAP-supported SB 1399, protecting the interest of children and faith based foster care and adoption agencies by prohibiting discrimination based on religious views.
The ever-changing sexual ethic demands conformity in all corners of society, regardless of the cost. States have given in to pressure to exclude individuals, companies, and organizations that hold a historical or religious view of human sexuality. This unconstitutional mandate forces religious organizations to either violate their religious convictions or stop providing adoption and foster care services, which they have done for decades.
This new law ensures that won’t happen in Arizona, protecting religious freedom while also maximizing the foster care and adoption service available to children. The more agencies and the more families willing to open their homes to children that need one, the more Arizona children can find a forever home. It also means faith-based families looking to expand through foster care or adoption can do so without the risk of losing their freedom to exercise their religion.
It’s Time to Prepare
On August 2nd, voters will decide the Democrat and Republican choices to go head-to-head in the general election November 8th. Because the winners of the primary election can make or break the final winner, it is not an election to overlook. Choose wisely.
