BLOGAsk President Trump to Fulfill His Promise and Protect Religious Freedom

By Jim Campbell Posted on: | February 03, 2017

President Trump can make a real and immediate difference for religious freedom. You should join with us in urging him to do it.

You’ve heard the stories. Faith-based foster-care and adoption agencies being forced to stop their ministry to children simply because they operate according to their religious beliefs about marriage. And the government forcing a religiously run home for the elderly and faith-based universities to violate their beliefs by providing abortion-inducing drugs in their insurance plans.


But now there is an opportunity to ACT and MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE!

President Trump can sign a much-needed executive order that will protect the religious freedom of these organizations and their vital work. Exercise your free speech rights and encourage him to do just that.


Here’s what you can do to help.

Write an email to President Trump. Tell him to sign the religious freedom executive order and remind him that there are THREE vital reasons he should do it:

  1. President Trump has repeatedly promised to protect religious freedom. At a Faith and Freedom forum in 2015, President Trump promised that the “first priority” of his administration would be “to preserve and protect our religious liberty.” Tell President Trump that you look forward to him making good on that promise. And if President Trump’s stance on religious liberty is one of the reasons you supported him, either before or after the election, tell him so.
  2. Let President Trump know that you want the executive order because you don’t think anyone should be forced to provide abortion-inducing drugs that violate their convictions.  
  3. Tell President Trump that the executive order is important because shutting down religious charities that serve needy families and abandoned children helps no one.  Remind the President that freeing those organizations to love and serve their neighbors is good for all of us. In fact, a recent study concluded that “the fair market value of goods and services provided by religious organizations” and “businesses with religious roots” is over $1 trillion annually in the United States.
