Today you have another opportunity to use your voice to support the good work that President Trump is doing.
Last week, the Trump Administration issued a proposed rule clarifying the rights of faith-based organizations in applying for government contracts. The proposed rule upholds long-established First Amendment and civil rights protections passed by Congress and reinforced by the U.S. Supreme Court. This rule is now open for comment; click here to learn more and submit your comment!
Even if you’re not a government contractor and have no plans to become one, the rules imposed on government contractors will likely still affect you if they have not done so already. These rules are usually adopted by companies, corporations, state and local governments, and become commonly accepted business practices. It is also imperative that we support religious freedom for all people.
As we continue to witness these attacks on people of faith who run businesses according to their religious beliefs, such as Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, these types of clarifying regulations are necessary to ensure our liberties are protected. This rule does not change federal law, it merely clarifies that existing laws, like the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), already prohibit this type of discrimination.
The deadline to comment is September 16, and we encourage you to submit your comment today and support President Trump’s actions!
