The other day, presidential spokesman Sean Spicer was asked about protecting religious liberty, and he nailed his answer. Spicer told the media that religious liberty is not just about being able to believe your faith’s teachings, but to live them out in your daily life.
What a breath of fresh air!
Across this country, people have been punished, persecuted and harassed by various levels of government simply for living out their beliefs in their daily lives. The Little Sisters of the Poor have been targeted by the government for not providing coverage for drugs they find morally offensive. The fire chief of Atlanta was fired for writing in a book that he supports marriage as the union of one man and one woman. A florist in Washington state is being sued by the state's Attorney General simply because she did not want to personally participate in a same-sex 'wedding' ceremony.
President Trump can take a major step forward for religious liberty and the principles his press spokesman articulated to the national media by signing an Executive Order that will protect supporters of marriage from being targeted by the federal government. Thousands of people have signed NOM's petition to the Trump Administration and we call on him to sign this order forthwith.
It's time for NOM to ramp up public attention to the religious liberty issue by mobilizing thousands more Americans to contact the President and request that he issue the pending Executive Order on religious liberty. Will you help us reach more citizens by making a much-needed financial contribution today?
President Trump promised during his campaign that he would act to support religious liberty and it's time that he delivered on his campaign commitment by signing the pending Executive Order. Now we must ramp up the pressure by mobilizing even more Americans to contact the President and ask him to act in support of religious liberty.
Please act today to make a financial contribution so that NOM can mobilize citizens to urge President Trump to act.
