President Trump Signs Executive Order Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty…

Earlier today President Trump signed an executive order promoting speech and religious liberty during a ceremony in the Rose Garden:

.

Details of the Executive Order:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, in order to guide the executive branch in formulating and implementing policies with implications for the religious liberty of persons and organizations in America, and to further compliance with the Constitution and with applicable statutes and Presidential Directives, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. It shall be the policy of the executive branch to vigorously enforce Federal law’s robust protections for religious freedom. The Founders envisioned a Nation in which religious voices and views were integral to a vibrant public square, and in which religious people and institutions were free to practice their faith without fear of discrimination or retaliation by the Federal Government. For that reason, the United States Constitution enshrines and protects the fundamental right to religious liberty as Americans’ first freedom. Federal law protects the freedom of Americans and their organizations to exercise religion and participate fully in civic life without undue interference by the Federal Government. The executive branch will honor and enforce those protections.

Sec. 2. Respecting Religious and Political Speech. All executive departments and agencies (agencies) shall, to the greatest extent practicable and to the extent permitted by law, respect and protect the freedom of persons and organizations to engage in religious and political speech. In particular, the Secretary of the Treasury shall ensure, to the extent permitted by law, that the Department of the Treasury does not take any adverse action against any individual, house of worship, or other religious organization on the basis that such individual or organization speaks or has spoken about moral or political issues from a religious perspective, where speech of similar character has, consistent with law, not ordinarily been treated as participation or intervention in a political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) a candidate for public office by the Department of the Treasury. As used in this section, the term “adverse action” means the imposition of any tax or tax penalty; the delay or denial of tax-exempt status; the disallowance of tax deductions for contributions made to entities exempted from taxation under section 501(c)(3) of title 26, United States Code; or any other action that makes unavailable or denies any tax deduction, exemption, credit, or benefit.

Sec. 3. Conscience Protections with Respect to Preventive-Care Mandate. The Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Labor, and the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall consider issuing amended regulations, consistent with applicable law, to address conscience-based objections to the preventive-care mandate promulgated under section 300gg-13(a)(4) of title 42, United States Code.

Sec. 4. Religious Liberty Guidance. In order to guide all agencies in complying with relevant Federal law, the Attorney General shall, as appropriate, issue guidance interpreting religious liberty protections in Federal law.

Sec. 5. Severability. If any provision of this order, or the application of any provision to any individual or circumstance, is held to be invalid, the remainder of this order and the application of its other provisions to any other individuals or circumstances shall not be affected thereby.

Sec. 6. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

    This was quite selfless of the president, given how many priests and pastors will relish the newfound opportunity to target him explicitly from the pulpit. Oh well.

        Well, really he has made Black churches legal again. I have long been told by many students about the politics that go along with those 2-5 hours long sermons on Sunday. The black churches never feared that the federal government would come knocking on their door to shut down a politician from speaking. I have first hand knowledge of this happening (candidates speaking at churches) in order to get Democrat votes. So now we have freedom of religion and less dishonest and criminal elements sitting in churches throughout America.

        The lady in pink, pretty in pink was Paula, and had been working on this for two years. She received the second pen. I don’t anymore about her though, does anyone here? Kinda hard to research with only knowing a first name.

        I would’ve also liked to have known who the others on the stage were while he signed the E.O.’s.

        It was good to see them all so happy and smiling. I especially loved seeing the two sisters on the stage, they earned it in my book. Loved the lawyer comments too from our President. It was nice to see him give them credit as well. They did a heck of a job not only for the sisters, but all of our Nation.

      • Ministers and priests still have to be careful – of their own congregations. Remember, we are split about 50-50. So any sermons should be carefully reasoned and based strictly on the Bible!

        I left my RC parish when I could no longer stand the priest essentially issuing orders from the pulpit. And my Mother said RC priests used to tell congregants from the pulpit who to vote for. My Dad, the RC in the family, did not reply. He may have left, too, but didn’t want to upset us kids.

      “…to the extent permitted by law.” If it violates the law, infringes on the (real, not invented) rights of others, the color of religion doesn’t excuse or permit it. So, the Mohammedans can’t have a Shariah parallel legal system, multiple wives, marry children, have “intimate relationships” with children, rape infidels women or boys, execute gays, engage in honor killing, enforce Shariah blasphemy laws, engage in subversive or seditious speech that results in such behavior or get their jihad on.

      SCOTUS opined long ago that calling criminal activity “religious” doesn’t cut it. However, I’m sure the 9th Circuit will be available to support Shariah ushering in their own demise. We don’t have to and never did. The Johnson Amendment was never Constitutional. It wouldn’t have stood up in (a real) court. No one challenged it legally, as far as I know.

    Christians have been effectively silenced, politically, in their own churches. They have been sued by the government for standing up for their faith, and mocked by the media and universities to a horrible extent.

    Meanwhile Muslims have not been silenced in Mosques (nor on the street nor in our schools.) And media makes a constant big deal about their “rights” and how they should be respected, thus giving Islam honors while mocking Christianity.

    A day of Chrisitan prayer and celebration right at the White House was a sight to behold, and a joy to hear.

      The Founding Fathers said, when the WEAKEST OF THE BRANCHES, i.e., the judiciary, goes for too much power, that it is well within the constitutional authorities of both the executive and the legislature to limit the judiciary- by limiting their jurisdictional authority, establishing and abolishing courts, impeaching individual judges, etc. The only court specifically established in the Constitution is SCOTUS; all of the others are established by legislative statute (with the approval of the executive). Even SCOTUS can be adjusted/manipulated-FDR threatened to “pack the court,” i.e., tell Congress to increase the number of seats on the SC, which would have allowed him to appoint several hand-picked jurists to the new seats, if the SC didn’t get out of his way.

      It is well past time for Congress and POTUS to exercise their authority and bring the WEAKEST OF THE BRANCHES to heel. Black-robed tyrants-for-life are totally antithetical to the Republic, arguably even worse than an imperial president, and most of the problems in federal governance today can be traced back to judicial power grabs

In fact, they’re so dumb and indoctrinated with fake history and so busy emoting over their outrage du jour, they have no idea that the reason all faiths, and people with none, have that unalienable right recognized and protected is because of Christianity, its believe in Natural Law or that Natural Law underpins our laws and their rights. Silence and destroy Christianity, destroy your own rights. You’re right, allhail2. They’re pretty dang dumb.

      Yes, of course, there are dumb Christians and Christians who have skewed the Bible to do evil, but they were never supported by God’s Own Word. They were, and are, political and self-serving actors, not followers of Jesus.

      Islam is another story and these dumb dimwits would do well to know from original sources of what they speak and support, but then, since they are certain they’re smarter than everyone else, they don’t need to do such silly things as actually research what they think they know.

    I totally disagree with this. If churches/religious organizations are going to expound on politics from the pulpit then they need to give up the tax exemption. Religious organizations are there to provide spiritual succor, not political action directives. If members of a congregation choose individually to vote their conscience then great, they should. Their leader should not be telling them how their god(s) want them to vote.

Same goes for non profit organizations that don’t pay taxes and are secular, such as the NRA.

    From what I understand, this does not protect Christian businesses from being able to refuse to bake a cake or take wedding pics, etc. for a gay couple. Am I right? I don’t think Christians should have to spend their life savings protecting their right to religious freedom. Pence says let the courts decide. NO! It’s our 1st amendment right and is ALREADY protected so it shouldn’t be left for “the stinkin’ courts to decide.” There are plenty of people who are willing to do serve gay couples so they should go to someone else and stop purposely persecuting and being allowed to purposely persecute the Christians since it’s already a constitutional right.

    • State anti-discrimination laws which regulate local business practices can’t be changed by a presidential order, so Pence is technically correct. Courts can decide, and your state can write laws to address the issue. So far the Supreme Court has declined several times to review these kinds of cases, letting the lower court rulings stand.

            • Those rights not specifically designated to the government in the Constitution are all reserved for the states. This allows states to set fifty different rates for sales and municipal taxes and individual rules of commerce that can’t be overruled by the federal government.

              In cases where bakers (for example) refused to supply an offensive expression such as a swastika or an erotic design not normal for the bakery, they prevailed at trial under First Amendment grounds.

              But the bakers who objected to supplying even generic cakes, if they were to be consumed at a same-sex ceremony, lost at both local and appellate levels.

              The only bases for refusing trade, in most states and in most instances, is if the customer is acting disruptive, if they refuse to pay, or if the product requested is not a normally provided item or service.

At the Crusade, those who come forward are ushered into the hands of those who can help them find a church or community of believers that will help nurture their nascent faith. It’s not random at all but very supportive.

        I count myself as privileged to have had that opportunity and to have attended a crusade where the wonderful Rev. Billy Graham preached. I miss seeing him preaching. There will never be another Billy Graham. He changed the course of many many lives.

    Compare Trump to “Obama” who viciously attacked the Little Sisters of the Poor. What kind of monster would attack the Little Sisters of the Poor?!!

    The ACLU was founded by the American Communist Party in 1927 (Headquarters-Chicago, ILL). Its intent was and is to use the American legal system as a weapon to destroy the American way of life. One hundred years later we are finally fighting back! MAGA!!!

      Unfortunately the ACLU has only worked for the LBGTJ community for the last two decades. Christians must bake cakes for- and photograph marriages that they find offensive. Does it seem to you, as it does to me, that only liberals have to right to find offense in being forced to do something they don’t want to do. I personally don’t care if homosexuals think they are getting married. But I do personally care if I’m forced to partake of their ceremonies.

      Wow. Trump’s legal team must have put together something unbreakable to generate that kind of impotent snark from those snakes.

    This ceremony (video) is the most touching of all. The depth of what this will do to change our country back to a God fearing country is unfathomable to even comprehend. Massive change. Praise God! Thank you God for anointing and appointing Trump to be our President.
