After years of being shafted by former President Barack Obama’s administration, the Little Sisters of the Poor are slated to finally catch a break.
According to a leaked draft copy of an upcoming executive order obtained by The Nation magazine, President Trump Donald planned to revitalize religious liberty in America by imposing a slew of sensible policies that would protect the rights of everyone, including nuns.
One of these policies would reportedly instruct federal officials to grant relief to the Little Sisters of the Poor and other religious organizations that were not exempted from Obamacare’s contraceptive-abortifacient mandate, a rule that forced even nuns to pay for abortion-inducing drugs for employees of their religious order.
The president clearly meant it when, while speaking Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast, he promised to stand up for religious liberty.
“So I want to express clearly today to the American people that my administration will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty in our land,” he said, as noted by CNS News. “America must forever remain a tolerant society where all faiths are respected and where all of our citizens can feel safe and secure.”
Liberals were, of course, beside themselves. Just consider how The Nation titled its report: “Leaked Draft of Trump’s Religious Freedom Order Reveals Sweeping Plans to Legalize Discrimination.”
God forbid that America’s nuns — whom many would argue are some of the nation’s kindest souls — not be forced to fund the lascivious indulgences of others.
According to The Daily Signal, there is nothing even remotely discriminatory about the order. If anything, it would combat discrimination by, for example, requiring “that the federal government does not discriminate against child welfare providers, such as foster care and adoption services, based on the organization’s religious beliefs.”
But unfortunately, and for whatever reason, liberals live in a veritable Bizarro World, where discriminating against Christians is not discrimination.
Well, too bad for them, because their delusions about what does and doesn’t count as discrimination are about to be popped like bubbles.
