We’ve got to keep declaring our independence
Lost in last week’s hubbub with the “impeachment” circus was a new executive order by President Trump which “details scenarios in which school officials must permit prayer and clarifies the consequences if they don’t” (https://www.winknews.com/2020/01/16/president-trump-boosts-expanding-religious-prayer-in-public-schools/). No wonder all the bad guys hate him so.
The order states that now students may pray alone or in groups during lunch or other free periods.
It also eliminates a rule requiring religious groups to refer clients to “alternative organizations on request.” What that does is rein in the government’s insistence on telling you what you must say in certain circumstances, even if it goes against your conscience. Liberals love telling you what you must say, even while they compile long lists of things you can’t say.
Finally, the order will make it easier for religious groups to access federal grant programs.
Bear in mind that the president is not “giving” us anything that we don’t already have. We belong to God, who has endowed us with certain inalienable rights. What President Trump has done is to push back against humanists’ long campaign to restrict religious speech and practice. Which we should never have let them do in the first place.
He has also struck a blow against the unspoken but plainly communicated proposition that America’s state religion is secular humanism (which is a nice name for atheism).
Far Left Crazy has wailed and gnashed its teeth over this. Expect court cases to follow.
