Where do you draw the line between religion and government policy?  State Representative Adam Brown says that's not an easy question to answer.

The question comes after two at least two controversial religious issues came out of the Illinois legislature this year.  On one hand, Governor Quinn signed a bill that allows the Secretary of State to honor the Amish's religion by not forcing them to carry photo ID's.  But on the other, the state cancelled contracts with Catholic Charities because the agency wouldn't issue foster and adoption licenses to same sex couples.  Brown says government should be less intrusive.  He pushed for the Amish measure but wouldn't comment on the Catholic issue.
