A Victory for Young People, Pastors and Religious Liberty in Illinois (Spotlight #038)

On this special edition of Illinois Family Spotlight, Monte Larrick talks to John Mauck, an attorney and partner of the Mauck and Baker law firm, established in Chicago in 2001, is nationally known for representing churches, religious institutions, businesses, and individuals. John has been an attorney for over 30 years, representing many churches and ministries in Chicago to provide religious land use in restricted areas of the city. His work drafting the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act which became federal law in 2000 has helped congregations across the country freely worship.

They discuss Mauck and Baker’s lawsuit of HB 217, a new law which bans counselors, and, it could be construed, pastors, from giving counseling to minors who are seeking a way out of their same-sex attraction. They also talk about religious liberty, Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, and HB 40.

Call Governor Rauner’s office and ask him to veto HB 40! (217) 782-0244.
