There are religious freedom laws in 19 states already and they are being pushed in many more. One such law was approved by the Arkansas legislature on Tuesday but sent back for revision by Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Wednesday. There is a federal religious freedom law, too, that was backed by Democrats, as well as Republicans, and signed by President Bill Clinton. But not all these laws are equal. The federal law aimed to protect Native Americans who sought to use peyote in traditional ceremonies. The laws in many states are balanced by other laws that assure discrimination cannot be justified by religious beliefs. In several states, the statutes only apply to individuals in disputes with government, not businesses trying to deny services to private citizens.
