Churches Joining Fight In Indiana Against Right To Work

An AFL-CIO advisory this weekend announces a number of churches who are joining the fight to defeat right to work legislation being pushed by Governor Mitch Daniels and Republican state legislators. Several churches across the state were scheduling events following today's Sunday services to push for the defeat of the legislation. It seems rather odd for churches to be wading into this debate, but a cross section of churches are doing just that. From the press release:

Congregations from across Indiana are joining in the fight to defeat the deceptively named “right to work” law. Following Sunday services, several churches will be hosting letter writing sessions encouraging House Speaker Brain [sic]  Bosma and other legislators to end their push for the controversial legislation.
