Kentucky passes religious-freedom act [A State Law passed in 2013 Judge Bunning ignored]

Free Republic

Overriding Gov. Steve Beshear’s veto by overwhelming margins, the Kentucky house and senate have passed religious-freedom legislation. The Catholic Conference of Kentucky supported the measure.

The short law reads:


Government shall not substantially burden a person’s freedom of religion. The right to act or refuse to act in a manner motivated by a sincerely held religious belief may not be substantially burdened unless the government proves by clear and convincing evidence that it has a compelling governmental interest in infringing the specific act or refusal to act and has used the least restrictive means to further that interest. A “burden” shall include indirect burdens such as withholding benefits, assessing penalties, or an exclusion from programs or access to facilities.

  1. Like the dissenting views in the gay marriage “ruling” indicated, imposing gay marriage on all States is blatantly unconstitutional. The “supreme” court may opine, but it may not make law, particularly if that law conflicts with State sovereignty, this per the 10th Amendment.
