New federal rule to protect religious liberty praised
A Southern Baptist entity head and lawmaker have applauded a newly proposed rule to protect the rights of faith-based organizations that contract with the federal government.

he Department of Labor (DOL) announced the proposal Aug. 14, saying the rule guarantees "conscience and religious freedom are given the broadest protection permitted by law." The regulation clarifies churches and other religious organizations that act as federal contractors may hire and fire based on their sincerely held beliefs without fear of being penalized by the government.
