Trump Presses Immigration Ban in Remarks at National Prayer Breakfast

President Trump promised to safeguard “freedom of religion” during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, vowing to repeal a provision of the tax code that prevents religious nonprofits from engaging in openly political activity and doubling down on his aggressive anti-terror message, the Washington Examiner reported.

“My administration will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty in our land,” Trump said. “America must forever remain a tolerant society … where all of our citizens can feel safe and secure.”

“There are those that would seek to enter our country for the purpose of spreading violence,” Trump said. “The world is under serious, serious threat in so many different ways, and I’ve never seen it so much and so openly as since I took the position of president.

Trump also pledged to repeal a tax code provision called the Johnson Amendment, which bars churches from participating in political campaigns.

“I will get rid of and totally destroy the Johnson Amendment,” Trump said.

  1. Some Americans, enjoying the rights and privileges and protections of being American, are not more concerned with foreigners than they are with the safety of fellow Americans.

    What has happened?

  2. Churches are barred from participating in political campaigns? Were there not clerics who preached positively about Obama Care, who supported The Won all throughout his campaign and his reign? What about the “reverend” Al Sharpton?

    In my opinion churches and politics shouldn’t mix. What happened to “separation of church and state”?

  3. I am all for freedom of religion. To profess your faith.

    And I believe strongly in the separation of church and state. If Trump or anyone wants the church to participate in politics then they should pay taxes like everyone else.

    I am unclear about the details of the Johnson Amendment.

    But I am Catholic and I am disgusted with the RCC’s role in harboring illegals ,and taking money from the government to do charitable work that should be funded by the church, the parish, the congregation etc.

    And I am disgusted with a Pope who tends more to world politics than to the souls.
