Kentucky Today Publishes Two Important Op-Eds From The Family Foundation

KentuckyToday, a great news source for Christians throughout the Commonwealth, published two important op-eds from The Family Foundation this week addressing ongoing pro-family legislation.

Pastors approached The Family Foundation with concerns about recent changes that are threatening to turn Kentucky’s churches into the state’s tax collectors, thus harming their ministry. Our Director of Policy, Michael Johnson, shares more in his op-ed, Churches should not be turned into tax collectors.

Last year, the Kentucky General Assembly courageously passed a monumental parental rights bill, SB 150. However, Gov. Beshear’s Department of Education and some school districts, including the Commonwealth’s largest, are blatantly refusing to follow portion of the law. Our Executive Director, David Walls, shares more in his op-ed, General Assembly must take next step to secure parental rights.
