Trump’s ‘Tame’ Religious Liberty Executive Order

President Trump’s much-anticipated executive order on religious liberty was issued yesterday and received what might be called a lackluster response from religious liberty advocates. Some even called it milquetoast hogwash.

A rather robust draft executive order got leaked to LGBT activists earlier in the year, and no doubt their howls of protests (along with perhaps input from the President’s daughter and son-in-law) resulted in the rather “tame” version that was signed yesterday.

President Trumpets National Day of Prayer

While President Trump’s executive order regarding religious freedom did not go as far as most evangelicals had hoped, his proclamation recognizing the National Day of Prayer contained the following noteworthy statement:

The religious liberty guaranteed by the Constitution is not a favor from the government, but a natural right bestowed by God. Our Constitution and our laws that protect religious freedom merely recognize the right that all people have by virtue of their humanity.

Thursday, May 4, will mark the 66th observance of the National Day of Prayer. Since 1952, every president has signed a proclamation stating the importance of prayer for our country, and Gov. Haslam has already signed the proclamation for Tennessee. The National Day of Prayer will be observed through events across our state. If you are in the Nashville area, an observance will be held at the Tennessee Capitol in the Old Supreme Court Chambers from 9-11 a.m.
