Leaked Draft of Trump Executive Order Would Protect Religious Freedom for Gay Marriage, Abortion Opponents

President Donald Trump may issue a “religious freedom” order that would protect Americans’ rights to live their lives and run their businesses in accordance with their religious beliefs on marriage and abortion, according to draft order that has been leaked to the press.

As social conservative activists are voicing their disapproval over reports that indicate that Trump won’t rescind an order signed by President Barack Obama in 2014 that puts religious charities and other federal contractors at risk of losing federal grants because their employment practices are consistent with their religious views on marriage and sexuality, a draft of a potential executive order that began circulating through the administration on Tuesday indicates that Trump could move to protect organizational and individual religious convictions on social issues.

The draft, which was leaked to the The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute, is titled “Establishing a Government-Wide Initiative to Respect Religious Freedom.”

“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” – Proverbs 29:2
