(From American Civil Liberties Union Missouri)
In one week, Missourians will be taking a stand for or against religious freedom, whether they know it or not.
Amendment 3 is a deceptive ballot initiative. It calls for a tobacco tax to fund early childhood education programs. However, buried in the complicated language is one dangerous clause that would destroy the guarantee of religious freedom for all Missourians.
Missourians deserve to know when their rights are at stake.
Sacrificing the cornerstones of our democracy and undermining the constitutional protections of our citizens is not the way to fund the future of Missouri's children.
We ask you to reject Amendment 3 and its deceptive ploy to dismantle our religious freedom.
