President Trump reportedly will sign a controversial religious liberty executive order Thursday, just before he and conservative leaders celebrate the National Day of Prayer.
Citing senior administration officials, Politico reports that Trump has invited conservative speakers to the White House, where he will sign the executive order.
The draft seeks to provide exemptions for religious people and organizations who object to same-sex marriage, premarital sex, abortion, contraception and trans identity.
“The language is very, very strong,” one conservative source told Politico.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is already revving up for a court battle.
The ACLU said if Trump signs an executive order “that attempts to provide a license to discriminate against women or LGBT people, we will see him in court.” full source
“Difficult Times Will Come”
2 Timothy 3:3 But understand this, that in the last days dangerous times [of great stress and trouble] will come [difficult days that will be hard to bear].2 For people will be lovers of self [narcissistic, self-focused], lovers of money [impelled by greed], boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane, 3 [and they will be] unloving [devoid of natural human affection, calloused and inhumane], irreconcilable, malicious gossips, devoid of self-control [intemperate, immoral], brutal, haters of good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of [sensual] pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of [outward] godliness (religion), although they have denied its power [for their conduct nullifies their claim of faith]. Avoid such people and keep far away from them. 6 For among them are those who worm their way into homes and captivate morally weak and spiritually-dwarfed women weighed down by [the burden of their] sins, easily swayed by various impulses, 7 always learning and listening to anybody who will teach them, but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
