ERLC Releases 2014 Legislative Agenda

February 04, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 4, 2014—The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention released its 2014 Legislative Agenda today, outlining the issues the organization plans to address in the coming year. 

At the top of the list, the ERLC plans to address issues such as the sanctity of human life, religious freedom, marriage and family. 

“The second session of the 113th Congress is likely going to be a very difficult period legislatively,” said ERLC President Russell D. Moore. “Between election year jockeying and the ongoing political rancor it will be hard to find a path forward for many of the bills we want to see become law. Nevertheless, government is part of God’s design for ordering human relationships, so we must work to help it fulfill its creational purpose.”

Other legislative efforts Moore and the ERLC staff plan to cover in 2014 include:
