The biggest, most dangerous religious privilege bill of all time just passed the House and moved to the Senate.
Under HB2507, people who have been harmed by a religious organization or business are prohibited from suing or seeking prosecution for a huge array of laws, with exceptions carved out for only a select few heinous crimes. Under it, religious organizations would be permitted to freely discriminate against whomever they like, and religious practice could be used to defend in court against charges of crimes such as unlawful imprisonment, sex trafficking, fraudulent schemes, and child abuse.
This bill passed with support of all House Republicans, plus Democratic Representatives Chavez (D-29), Diego Rodriguez (D-27), Alma Hernandez (D-3), Espinoza (D-19), Meza (D-30), and Sierra (D-19).
