As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Reduces Restrictions on Political Speech by Religious Groups

President Trump at the White House today signed an executive order allowing religious groups more ability to engage in political advocacy.

“We will never, ever stand for religious discrimination,” Trump said. “We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced anymore.”

“The president’s order will free religious groups from restrictions on their political speech imposed by the Johnson Amendment, a tax regulation placed on religious nonprofits,” the Washington Examiner reported. “The order will also allow religious organizations to opt out of Obamacare provisions that conflict with their beliefs, such as a mandate that churches provide coverage for contraceptives.”

Here’s some video of Trump signing the order, as well as a proclamation declaring a National Day of Prayer, as religious leaders of various faiths look on.

  1. Finally. Churches other than Rev. Wright’s and Black Liberation Theologists etc. will be allowed to express their views. I am for separation of church and state, but being able to speak to a policy that is against your religion works for me. I think.

    The rest of it is good as well.

    No matter setbacks, Trump keeps moving forward removing obstacles, mistakes etc. Good.

    I wish he would remove more human obstacles and enemies in the bureaucracy, but …..Comey, Koskinen, practically the entire State Department and of course DOJ. But there are only so many hours in a day and this President works long and hard for us.
