President Trump Signs Executive Order Protecting Religious Liberty and Free Speech

WRITTEN BY GEORGE LUJACK:

May 04, 2017

screen-shot-2017-05-06-at-2-53-45-pmPresident Trump signed an executive order today, easing the religious liberty and free speech restrictions placed upon 501c3 non-profit churches and other organizations. Trump’s executive order instructs the Internal Revenue Service to “not take any adverse action against any individual, house of worship, or other religious organization” that endorse or oppose candidates from the pulpit, which is currently outlawed by a provision typically referred to as the Johnson Amendment.

The Johnson Amendment, named for then-Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, is a provision in the U.S. tax code that prohibits all 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations from endorsing or opposing political candidates. The intention of the Johnson Amendment was to restrict the free speech rights of churches and other religious groups. A 501c3 religious speaker, who endorsed or opposed a political candidate, faced losing his or her 501c3 non-profit tax exempt status, meaning donations made to such religious organizations could not be declared as tax deductible, which could result in a loss of charitable donations that these churches receive and depend upon to sustain themselves. In application and practice, the IRS has been increasingly using the Johnson Amendment, as well as other IRS tax codes, to target conservative Christian churches and ministers.

President Trump also proclaimed May 04, 2017, as a national day of prayer.

Excerpts from President Trump’s May 4th Rose Garden White House speech included:

screen-shot-2017-05-06-at-3-01-56-pm“We are a nation of believers. Faith is deeply embedded into the history of our country, the spirit of our founding, and the soul of our nation.”

“Today my administration is leading, by example, as we take historic steps to protect religious liberty in the United States of America. We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied, or silenced anymore.”

“We remember this eternal truth; freedom is not a gift from government, freedom is a gift from God.”

“No one should be censoring sermons or targeting pastors.”

“In America, we do not fear people speaking freely from the pulpit, we embrace it. America has a rich tradition of social change beginning in our pews and our pulpits. Perhaps there is no greater example than the historic role of the African-American church as the agent for social progress, spurring our nation to greater justice and equality. We must never infringe on the noble tradition of change from the church and progress from the pew. Under my administration, free speech does not end at the steps of a cathedral or a synagogue or any other house of worship. We are giving our churches their voices back.”

“With this executive order, we are ending the attacks on your religious liberty and we are proudly reaffirming America’s leadership role as a nation that protects religious freedom for everyone.”

President Trump evoked the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who was himself a religious leader once targeted by the IRS, as he declared, “Over 60-years ago the IRS went after one of the greatest leaders in history, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.”

Critics charge that while President Trump’s executive order targets the Johnson Amendment, only Congress can formally repeal it.

Kelly Shackelford, with the Liberty Institute, discussed various cases concerning the condition of religious liberty in the United States.

“Our newest case: two Christian private schools were ordered by the state of Florida not to pray before their football game,” Shackelford expressed. “Our win rate, for several years in a row, have been over 90 percent.”

He cited another circumstance where people who received federally funded food were told that they could not pray over it.

Another case regards the Peace Cross in Bladensburg, MD, which serves as a World War I monument. A lawsuit has been filed for the monument to be torn down.

“Multitudes of other people across the country are standing,” he said. “We have to stand with them.”

Kirk Cameron spoke at the 2016 Values Voter Summit, and discussed various issues pertaining to the condition of the United States and the importance of Godly morality.

“If we want America to be great again, America needs to become good again,” Cameron expressed. “That happens when America remembers that God is great.”

“Until we can get it right in our house, we can never get it right in the White House.”

“It’s bad for everybody for government to get out of control,” he said. “All the progressives need it one more term, and then it is lock-down, for a longtime. It is now or never.”

“Please, get out and vote,” he stated. “Vote for representatives and leaders that will protect you and me.”

Cameron is a Christian film director and former child-star of ‘Growing Pains.’
