MESSAGE FROM CAIR-St. Louis:
Missouri Act Now: Governor Veto Anti-Islam Bill
CLICK HERE TO SIGN PETITION--
Urge MO Governor Jay Nixon To Veto SB 267 & Protect Freedom of Religion. The St. Louis Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-St. Louis) is calling on all people of conscience in Missouri to urge Governor Jay Nixon to VETO anti-Islam Senate Bill 267 (SB 267).
In the last few years, CAIR has witnessed a trend of state-level support for such legislation. While many public discussions about these bills seek to put a benign face on it, its purpose is to target religious practices of Muslims, similar to past misguided efforts to target Catholics, Jews and other faith minorities in the United States.
Make your voice heard by acting now to oppose such hateful and bigoted legislation!
Part of the Letter--
Veto Anti-Religion Bill SB 267
As a concerned Missourian I urge you to veto Senate Bill 267.
Sponsored by Sen. Brian Nieves, SB 267 is an unnecessary and biased piece of legislation introduced to address a perceived problem that simply does not exist.
While many public discussions about SB 267 seek to put a benign face on the bill, its purpose is to target religious practices of Muslims, similar to past misguided efforts to target Catholics, Jews and other faith minorities in the United States.
SB 267 would negatively affect constitutionally-protected religious rights, impacting the writing of marriage contracts, the implementation of wills or even being buried according to one's religious beliefs. It could also adversely affect the validation of international adoptions and foreign marriages.
