The new bill was widely criticized by Christians and human rights activists who described it as "anti-religious tolerance" and "Sick in the head."
Some advocates said that this bill could further anger people in Israel who are already protesting against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government due to its controversial plans to overhaul the country’s judicial system.
Furthermore, the Israeli outlet said that the new proposed bill could create a crack in the relationship between the United States and Israel.
