No one knows what Trump's 'religious liberty' executive order actually means

By Dawn Ennis · Friday, May 5, 2017

The flock of right-wing religious leaders hadn’t even dispersed from the White House Rose Garden when reactions to President Donald Trump‘s religious freedom executive order started pouring in from the on-air pulpits of the nation’s conservative Christian preachers. And not all of it was good. But what is clear is that nobody — on either side — can agree exactly what this new decree actually means.

Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage and World Congress for Families denounced the president for his “failure to directly fulfill his repeated campaign promises,” and saw an opportunity to, shocker, raise money.

This is the second time that President Trump has backed away from signing a comprehensive order protecting religious liberty after LGBT groups complained about the proposed actions. We cannot accept this capitulation on such a critical issue and must fight back. Will you help us insist that President Trump fulfill his repeated promises to protect the religious liberty of people of faith?


JoeMyGod noted the message from Brown contained ten links to NOM‘s donation page, one for every commandment.

Raging homophobe Bryan Fischer told listeners of his American Family Association radio show that he’s figured out that this is all Ivanka’s fault.

2. It looked to me like a symbolic gesture sort of thing.

It's extra-constitutional and probably will have no real effect. But, it's a straw to be grasped by one segment.
