Cosponsor H.R. 3222, the Do No Harm Act

We are writing to urge you to add your name as a cosponsor of The Do No Harm Act (H.R. 3222) – a bill that would restore the Religious Freedom Restoration Act’s (RFRA) purpose of serving as a protective shield for the free exercise of religion rather than
as a sword used to harm others.  The Do No Harm Act would make clear that RFRA does
not preempt fundamental laws that protect against discrimination and would restore the sacred balance between our right to religious freedom and our promise of equal protection under the law.  Specifically, the bill would
prevent the RFRA law from being used to deny:

Cosponsor a Bill to Remove a Confederate Statue from Federal Land

Please cosponsor my bill (H.R. 3983) to require the removal of a statue of Confederate General Albert Pike from federal land near Judiciary Square in the District of Columbia.  This statue is different from other Confederate statues elsewhere in the United
States, as it was authorized by Congress in 1898, and was paid for in part with federal funds.  The Freemasons, of which Pike was a member, donated the majority of the funds needed to build and install the statue in 1901.  Pike served dishonorably and was
forced to resign from the Confederate Army in disgrace.  Soldiers under his command were found to have mutilated the bodies of Union soldiers, and he was ultimately imprisoned after his fellow Confederate officers reported that he had been misappropriating
funds.  Adding to the dishonor of taking up arms against the United States, Pike dishonored even his Confederate military service.  He certainly has no claim to be memorialized in the nation’s capital.  Even those who do not want Confederate statues removed
would have a difficult time justifying the Pike statue, especially considering his history.
