BJC: Executive Order does not advance religious liberty

“This order appears to be largely a symbolic act, voicing concern for religious liberty but offering nothing to advance it. Worse, it is further evidence that President Trump wants churches to be vehicles for political campaigns,” said Amanda Tyler, executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee.

BJC: Supreme Court should rule against Trinity Lutheran Church to protect religious liberty

“…it is a fundamental principle of religious liberty in this country that the government does not fund religious exercise. Churches are by definition expressions of religion — organized for religious exercise. That’s why churches are, and should be, given special treatment. It is a necessary protection for religious liberty, not a mark of hostility or discrimination against religion.”
