Farnaz1Mansouri1 The federal government has laws that preclude discrimination in hiring. So long as religious institutions are established on American soil, they must be required to obey the law.As matters stand, they have not been.

Frankly, I’m amazed that these institutions can bring themselves to accept this taxation without representation from the rest of us. This, while Americans go to bed hungry.
