Incredible: This is why Christians voted Donald Trump in. And he is making good on his promise. Part of the reason for the great Evangelical and Catholic support of Trump in the 2016 election was his promise to restore religious liberty to the increasingly persecuted and marginalized Christians.
A growing number of lawsuits were being brought against believers under Obama's administration for following their beliefs on abortion and marriage. The Little Sisters of the Poor were one such example.
The Catholic nonprofit was entrenched in an ongoing lawsuit for not wanting to give out contraceptives and abortifacient drugs. Under Obamacare, they were being forced.
But yesterday, on the National Day of Prayer, President Trump signed an executive order giving breathing room to religious groups over issues of conscience, reports NBC.
NBC explains: "The executive order, called 'Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty,' also gives 'regulatory relief' to companies that object to an Obamacare mandate for contraception in health care. That builds on the 2014 Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, which found that the Affordable Care Act mandate that certain corporations must provide female employees with no-cost access to contraception was a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act."
He said these powerful statements at the Rose Garden, as many people of faith looked on in approval.
"Faith is deeply embedded into the history of our country, the spirit of our founding and the soul of our nation. We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced anymore."
"We are giving our churches their voices back," Trump continued, boldly.
This is exactly the kind of language Christians have been longing to hear from their president. Thank God President Trump is making good on his promises!
