LETTER TO THE EDITOR: California bill targets people of faith

- The Washington Times - Thursday, April 11, 2013

California lawmakers are considering taxing youth groups, such as the Boy Scouts of America, that do not accept homosexual, transgender or atheist members ("California bill would take away tax benefits for Boy Scouts," Web, Wednesday). Ironically, they are showing bigotry against faith groups.

People of faith and their groups, who accept the Bible as the inspired and inerrant word of God, are coming under tremendous pressure to conform to that which goes against their religious beliefs. Freedom of religion is a constitutional, guaranteed right, so why are these lawmakers singling out people of faith for taxation and acting like lawbreakers?

The left won't be happy until they control every aspect of our lives. We desperately need leaders who will expose the political left's un-American agenda and stand up for our Constitution.
