    Along with many of my colleagues, I stand in opposition of the Religious Freedom Rights Act (RFRA). Simply, we have reached an age in our Nation where the sexual orientation of our people should not hinder their quality of living as US citizens. The LGBT community deserve protections, therefore I will oppose any law that could allow for any discrimination onto any of our fellow Hoosiers.

    I support the long held division of church and state when it comes to public policy. My spiritual identity is very important to me, but I would never let my beliefs define my work in the public sector.

    I SUPPORTS LITTLE OR NO INTERACTION BETWEEN RELIGIOUS TENANTS AND GOVERNMENT POLICIES IN PUBLIC SOCIETY. With cooperation with the people. The state can conduct religious activities. However following the constitution, It forbids Congress from promoting one religion over others.

    Freedom of Religion should be strongly respected. The government should not be influenced by the church and the church should not be influenced by the government.

    We are a nation of laws. One particular religious view should not hold sway over the political decisions that are made in our legislatures. We must be respectful of our differences but we should never confuse religious conviction with the right to impose this view on others.
