Trump Religious Liberty Executive Order To Turn Churches Into Republican Super PACs

trump religious liberty eo It’s conceivable that Trump is hoping his boy Gorsuch will welcome the opportunity to expand corporate “religious freedom” to all corporations, whether said religious views are sincerely held, or merely more profitable. But if we go with the existing jurisprudence of the Supreme Court, this element of the Executive Order will fail.

In a conference call which PoliticusUSA was a part of, a senior White House official explained that the Trump administration's religious liberty executive order would direct the IRS to enforce maximum discretion in enforcing the Johnson Amendment when it comes to religious leaders speaking about politics from the pulpit, which would, in essence, turn tax-exempt churches into Republican super PACs.
