The Act purported to protect the free exercise of religion for religious officials and institutions. Religious officials would not be required to perform marriage ceremonies in violation of their legal right to free exercise of religion. Moreover, faith based organizations would have been permitted to deny employment to individuals whose religious beliefs, or lack thereof, are not in accord with the organization. The Act would have further provided that no business may be required, by legislation, to operate on Saturday or Sunday and that sovereign immunity is waived under certain circumstances.
