Jim Banks on Civil Rights
Jim Banks believes that this issue will unequivocally be one of the defining issues of his lifetime as religious institutions, private organizations and businesses face increased scrutiny and zealous regulation designed to bring them in line with views that are directly opposed to their deeply-held personal values.
Hoosiers who value their religious freedom need to send someone to Washington who will fight to protect their values and not back down when there is a challenge to these important First Amendment freedoms. We can't afford to sacrifice this important founding principle on the altar of relativism.
The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Marriage: Do you support same-sex marriage?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
