Religious-Freedom-300x201

(BOISE, ID) – The Idaho House has set aside a highly controversial religious freedom bill. The legislation pushed by Republican Rep. Lynn Luker of Boise would allow business owners and professionals to refuse service to anyone for religious reasons. House Speaker Scott Bedke of Oakley sent the bill back to a committee on Wednesday, noting that it could reappear in a modified form. Bedke says the bill has inflamed the passions of both the LGBT community and the religious right.
