TFN Statement on House Bill 3678
Legislation Threatens Religious Freedom, Puts Schools in Legal Jeopardy
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 30, 2007
TFN President Kathy Miller released the following statement today regarding the passage of H.B. 3678 in the Texas House.
“The author can claim whatever he wants, but the truth is that this bill threatens the religious freedom of students. Under this legislation, students will be held captive to the expression of religious beliefs that they and their families may not share. Students will be able to promote their own religious views over everybody else’s, placing schools in serious legal jeopardy. The House failed to approve amendments that would fix these flaws.”
