- One in three American workers have actually experienced or personally seen incidents of religious bias when they go to work.

On the heels of that survey, the City of San Antonio, Texas, this week passed an ordinance that targets citizens and businesses who hold traditional religious views about sexuality, and grants special protected status and rights to homosexual, bisexual, and transgendered individuals.

Thus, a Catholic RCIA instructor articulating the Church’s teaching on these matters could be removed from office or have their contracts with the city terminated.
The Liberty institute is promising a legal challenge to the new law.
