Liberals and Atheists Freak Out Over Trump’s Religious Freedom Executive Order

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on May 4, the National Day of Prayer, “that allows churches and other religious organizations to become more active politically, according to officials.”

While conservatives were hoping for more, atheists and liberal Democrats were hoping for less, except in black churches where Democrats have been politicking for decades with nary a peep from the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State. I’m not sure if atheist groups have officially protested and brought a suit against any minority churches.

As I mentioned in a previous article, the long-term goal of atheists is to remove every vestige of Religion from American life, starting with the small towns and moving to the large leftist cities. Once the only real competitor to Islam is eradicated, the atheists themselves will be eradicated.

Like clockwork, The Freedom From Religion Foundation has brought suit against the Trump administration:

“The Freedom From Religion Foundation filed suit Thursday in federal court against Trump and the Internal Revenue Service, claiming the order is unconstitutional because it makes government favor religion over nonreligion. Although the executive order applies to all nonprofits, FFRF believes it will be selectively enforced so as to only benefit churches and religious organizations. (The Daily Beast)

After Trump signed his Executive Order, an ABC affiliate offered this poll question: “Should religion be allowed in politics?”

The question is poorly constructed (on purpose?) since religion has always been part of American politics. What constitutes religion? Who gets to decide? The Declaration of Independence mentions God four times and the Constitution references it in its closing statement. Unconstitutional?:

1. The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God…
2. Endowed by their Creator…
3. The Supreme Judge of the world…
4. The protection of divine Providence…

This is no deistic God. He is a God who endows, judges, and protects…
