Last month, Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) led 51 of his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in a letter urging President Donald Trump to sign an executive order protecting religious liberty. Rep. Davidson released the following statement after President Trump signed his executive order providing protections:
“President Trump’s executive order will provide relief for organizations from the unfair HHS contraception mandate, ensure the free speech rights of faith leaders, and require federal agencies to follow the Constitution and current law.
“While this is a good first step, more work remains. This order fails to roll back some of the worst progressive mandates of the Obama era. Namely, protections are still needed for religious organizations involved with adoptions, military chaplains serving our troops, federal contractors seeking to preserve their religious identity, and schools maintaining their religious mission. Hillary Clinton punctuated this affront to our Constitution, when she suggested those opposed to her progressive views simply change their doctrine.
