[Ed. – The war on Christianity proceeds apace.]
Members of Congress have sworn to protect the First Amendment of the Constitution, yet some Democratic House committee leaders are now calling for the government to trample upon the religious freedom of a faith-based foster care provider.
The conflict centers on Miracle Hill Ministries, a Christian charity based in South Carolina. Its activities include homeless shelters, addiction recovery programs, and more. The group also recruits and supports foster families.
Miracle Hill came under fire when a Jewish couple discovered that Miracle Hill works exclusively with prospective foster parents who are also Christian because of their religious convictions.
The couple alleged religious discrimination—and soon the state was threatening not to renew Miracle Hill’s license.
Fortunately, the governor intervened and agreed to work with federal officials at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to seek a waiver for Miracle Hill under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act so that it can continue to operate according to its religious beliefs.
However, some Democratic members of Congress are trying to stop those efforts.
