No one should be censoring sermons or targeting pastors. We are giving our churches their voices back
An atheist group have filed a legal challenge against President Trump’s religious liberty executive order, reports Huffington Post. The Freedom From Religion Foundation claims that the order indicates unconstitutional support for religious groups.
“This executive order directs the IRS not to unfairly target churches and religious organizations for political speech,” Trump said at the signing ceremony. “No one should be censoring sermons or targeting pastors. We are giving our churches their voices back.”
Among its many faults,” the FFRF lawsuit states, Trump’s order “requires the IRS to selectively and preferentially discontinue enforcement of the electioneering restrictions of the tax code against churches and religious organizations, while applying a more vigorous enforcement standard to secular nonprofits.”
