Yesterday, SCOTUS began hearing a case with major implications for religious liberty and America. Praying they make the right decision and preserve the right of individual conscience.— Jay Fant (@jay_fant) December 6, 2017
In Florida, we're not gonna sit around and leave liberty up to dispute. I filed HB 871, the Free Enterprise Protection Act, so business owners don't live in fear of social justice zealots.— Jay Fant (@jay_fant) December 6, 2017
A government that can compel your speech on a wedding cake, may also compel your speech in other public forums. Protecting First Amendment rights is ALWAYS the way to go. If I were AGl, I would file a friend of the court briefing advocating the overturn of the Baker case.— Jay Fant (@jay_fant) December 6, 2017
I am encouraged by yesterday's oral argument in the case. When I'm AG, I will protect our constitutional rights to free speech and religious liberty.— Jay Fant (@jay_fant) December 6, 2017
