In what was quite possibly the most Christian-affirming State of the Union in history, President Donald Trump defended the Freedom of Religion, denounced anti-religion ‘cancel culture’ and lauded the glory of God.
Democrats and the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (but we repeat ourselves) sat out with their arms folded bitterly while Trump defended religious liberty.
Trump used his speech to affirm these ideas.
“My administration is also defending religious liberty, and that includes the constitutional right to pray in public schools,” Trump said.
“In America, we don’t punish prayer. We don’t tear down crosses. We don’t ban symbols of faith. We don’t muzzle preachers and pastors.”
He continued, “In America, we celebrate faith. We cherish religion. We lift our voices in prayer, and we raise our sights to the glory of God.”
The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention – led by Democrat Russell Moore – has offered no accolades to Trump for his remarks about religious liberty.
Instead, the ERLC research fellows began a new round of attacks against Trump in social media.
