Throughout his long campaign and four months as president-elect, he made some audacious promises to the American people, such as building a huge wall stretching across the U. S. -Mexican border, putting coal miners back to work, repealing the... Will President Trump practice more restraint and adhere to the prevailing rules of protocol and civility expected of a world leader. Based on his first few weeks in the Oval Office, though, we have every reason to believe that the Trump we have observed for months is the real Trump. The media’s compulsive coverage of Donald Trump as candidate and president has made little mention of his perspective related to our basic and historic understanding of religious freedom embodied in the First Amendment to the Constitution. There is evidence to support the notion that Trump has little or no familiarity with the U. S. Constitution, or that he simply has no regard for it. His pronouncements while a candidate and as president-elect about the relationship between... The concept that government must neither promote nor disparage any religion seems to be completely foreign to him. Candidate Trump repeatedly directed troubling threats toward our Muslim citizens that rob them of their First Amendment rights. His ideas of registering Muslims and banning Muslims from entering this country are far beyond what is acceptable in a democracy, and the enactment of such ideas would be an unimaginably dangerous practice. President Trump’s appointment of Lt. Gen. Repealing the “Johnson Amendment” is another promise Trump made specifically to conservative Christian leaders. Lyndon Johnson was a U. S. senator when he added an amendment to the federal tax law in1954. The amendment prohibits tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations from endorsing or opposing any candidate running for public office. Houses of worship can decline the tax-exempt status and actively campaign for or against candidates, but some churches want both the exemption and the permission to be politically active. Why should taxpayers subsidize a church in the form of an exemption when that church is operating as a political action committee. Also, the Donald Trump who once supported LGBTQ rights has reversed that position and now says he would sign proposed legislation that would legalize discrimination (refusing services) against anyone considered to be immoral. The proposed legislation, the First Amendment Defense Act, would deny our fellow citizens equal protection under the law. In addition, Trump has proposed a $20 billion voucher program that would siphon tax dollars away from public schools and direct them to private, mostly religious, institutions. If this proposal is enacted into law, there is little doubt significant funds will be given to students attending religious schools, because Trump’s secretary of education, Betsy DeVos, is an advocate for the privatization of public schools and is... Freedom of religion is a gift the United States gave to the world in the 18th century. The idea that there would be no state religion was a revolutionary concept. In the 21st century, Trump, who has less than a sophisticated grasp of religious freedom, is challenging that concept. We must take pains to guard the constitutional standard of freedom of religion that is under attack from the highest level of government.
