Hi John. Thank you for your courteous response.
The problem, whatever your assessment of what this proposal does, is that it benefits you “only if you believe…”
Therefore, not only does it establish a specific set of religious beliefs within the Bill of Rights, it will also become the standard by which any law effecting religious institutions and religious individuals is judged.
So what you identity as too narrow in its protection is also very board in the protections for a specific class of individuals and institutions based solely on a specfic set of religious beliefs.
This is a clear repudiation of the priniciples enshrined in the Missouri Constitution and the U.S. Constitution.
