(GOSHEN) – A pair of sex offenders filed a class action law suit claiming Indiana’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act should allow them to attend church services.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed the suit on behalf of two anonymous sex offenders against the prosecutors and sheriffs of Elkhart and Allen Counties.
Both offenders are Christians who wish to worship at churches that also have schools.
They claim the laws that threaten to charge them with felonies for doing so go against the new Religious Freedom Restoration Act because they are not the least restrictive means of furthering the government’s cause.
They’re seeking a permanent injunction against the laws that keep them from worshiping at their churches.
