On Tuesday, a representative of Alliance Defending Freedom confirmed to Family Council that the organization supports Issue 3, the Arkansas Religious Freedom Amendment.
Alliance Defending Freedom is a Christian nonprofit organization. Their attorneys specialize in defending religious liberty, free speech, the sanctity of human life, parental rights, and biblical marriage and family.
Issue 3 is a constitutional amendment that protects religious liberty in Arkansas.
Issue 3 would guarantee that state and local laws will not infringe religious liberty and provide people with legal recourse if the government infringes their religious freedoms. The amendment also maintains balance in situations in which religious liberty conflicts with a compelling governmental interest.
The state legislature voted to place Issue 3 on the ballot last year.
ADF is the latest organization to come out in support of the amendment.
Earlier this year FRC Action — an affiliate of Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. — endorsed Issue 3.
Family Council Action Committee is currently campaigning for the passage of Issue 3 in Arkansas.
