This past week the state legislature of Kansas rejected a proposed “Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” which has been passed by 12 states including Florida, Illinois, Oklahoma and Texas, reports Associated Press.

One Kansas lawmaker commented, ‘‘I didn’t know that my religious freedoms needed to be restored.”

A similar federal law was stuck down through judicial review six years ago. So now a well-organized religious lobby, which has included the support of some groups called “cults,” is attempting to pass the provision state by state.

However, is this legislation really about “religious freedom” or special protection?

Based upon the way this law has been used historically it appears to be the later.

Certainly Americans have the right to believe whatever they want, but that constitutional guarantee does not mandate special privileges under the moniker of “religious freedom.”

It seems rather than restoring something lost, this group of specious lobbyists actually want something more.
