By contrast, LOOK at what Trump is promising to do to protect our Religious Freedoms.
On the campaign trail, Trump has repeatedly said he would overturn the Johnson Amendment, which essentially prevents pastors from speaking on politics.
“The first thing we have to do is to give our churches their voice back,” Trump said. “I will repeal the Johnson Amendment if I am elected your president.”
America is “in serious, serious trouble,” Trump said. “Our media culture often mocks and demeans people of faith,” whose “values of love, charity and faith built this nation.”
“At this moment, I would like to thank the evangelical community who have been so good to me and so supportive. You have so much to contribute to our politics, yet our laws prevent you from speaking your minds from your own pulpits,” Trump said. “An amendment, pushed by Lyndon Johnson, many years ago, threatens religious institutions with a loss of their tax-exempt status if they openly advocate their political views. I am going to work very hard to repeal that language and protect free speech for all Americans.”
Trump said Clinton’s judicial nominations would be extreme and threaten Americans’ religious liberty.
“[Lyndon B Johnson] was having problems with churches. And there was a church in Houston that was giving him a hard time, maybe for a good reason, and he put in an amendment that basically stopped our great pastors and ministers and others from talking under the penalty of losing their tax-exempt status.”
(He also points out how many Evangelicals stayed home last election, and how the outcome this year will largely depend on what that group does.)
He then went on to describe what he was going to do with Obamacare.
