Today is the National Day of Prayer and President Trump took advantage of the day to sign an executive order protecting religious liberty. The executive order focused on the Johnston Amendment in an effort to weaken its strangle hold on churches and other religious organizations.
President Trump has promised to issue an executive order protecting religious freedom. As Christians are being hauled into court because they refuse to use their God-given talents to participate in a ‘gay wedding,’ the need for this executive order is greater now than ever.
New York’s openly homosexual Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney introduced an amendment to HR 5055, an Energy Department appropriations bill. The amendment would make President Obama’s July 21, 2014 executive order federal law requiring all federal contractors to hire homosexuals and transgenders — including religious organizations! Four of the 43 Republicans voting with all the Democrats were from Pennsylvania!!
On April 7th PA Governor Tom Wolf signed an executive order which extended Governor Ed Rendell’s executive order which added sexual orientation and gender identity or expression to the state’s hiring practices. A second one was issued that impacted those who contract with the state and receive grants from the state. Four days later the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide advocacy group, faxed the governor seeking clarification. Almost one month later, the AFA of PA has not received the clarification being sought.
AFA of PA encourages Christians, through education, to become involved in pro-family issues in their community, state and the nation. This is some of what has been going on in the Commonwealth and the nation.
The issuance of President Obama’s most recent executive order adding the words “sexual orientation and gender identity” to two previous executive orders — 11246, signed by President Lyndon Johnson on September 24, 1965 and 11478 signed by President Nixon on August 8, 1969 shows his continued bowing to pressure from homosexual activists and his inability to distinguish between changeable and unchangeable characteristics i.e. race/ethnicity are unchangeable while homosexuality is changeable.
Federal Government to give Pennsylvania $160 million to set up high risk pool insurance plan which also subsidizes abortion. Executive order has been proven worthless even as AFA of PA predicted.
Fox News is running a health care poll; Senate passes ‘reconciliation bill; four PA ‘pro-life’ Democrats attend secret signing of executive order.
President Obama secretly signs executive order supposedly preventing taxpayer dollars from being spent on abortions. Senator Bob Casey, Jr., Congressman Chris Carney, Kathy Dahlemper and Michael Doyle are invited.
How did you US Congressman vote in the federal takeover of health care?
