Right now, people are facing religious discrimination as they live out
their faith at work, school, the military, and the public arena. President
Trump is considering a Religious Freedom Executive Order that protects a wide
array of religious freedom activity.
Forces against the Order are pressuring the President not to sign it, or
to sign a vastly watered-down version with diminished protection. As the
largest legal organization in the nation dedicated exclusively to defending
religious liberty for all Americans, please join First Liberty Institute in telling
President Trump: “Sign the ENTIRE
Religious Freedom Order.”
To President Trump:
I urge you to sign the ENTIRE Religious Freedom Executive Order.
I thank you for speaking out for religious freedom during the campaign. But I’m distressed by rumors that you might cave into pressure by special interests and only sign a portion of this excellent Executive Order.
Right now, people of faith are facing religious discrimination in MANY areas that the Executive Order will address. Nothing less will do.
-Government agencies MUST be told to protect federal employees’ religious freedom.
-All Americans, including religious organizations, MUST be free from Obamacare rules forcing them to participate in abortion and contraception which violates their beliefs.
-Providers of child welfare, foster care, and adoption services should NOT be excluded by the federal government because of their religious beliefs.
-Federal grant recipients and contractors should be protected from religious discrimination.
-No religious organization should lose its tax-exempt status simply because its ordinary religious speech includes topics such as politics, marriage, sexuality, or when life begins.
I want an America where no one is punished because of believing or acting upon what their faith teaches.
Please keep your campaign promises to those who voted for you, and give full protection to religious freedom. Sign the ENTIRE Executive Order.
