Trumpís executive order on religious freedom under attack
Canada Free Press ^ | 05/09/17 | Fred Lucas

Most progressive groups oppose any expression of religion in the public square, and will likely oppose whatever this president does

After President Donald Trump issued an executive order on religious freedom last week, the Left used its pre-written script to attack it even though it was dramatically scaled back from the draft that was leaked to left-wing media outlets in February.

As if on cue, the Rev. Barry Lynn, president of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, pounced, claiming the executive order “tramples” and “guts” the entire notion of religious freedom.

Barry Lynn is less reverent than my son's dog.

I suppose "Rev." Lynn would rather Christians be fed to Federally-mandated lions.

Progressives are fine with public expression of religion. As long as it’s Islam.

Most Democrat and Mainstream Press progressive groups oppose any expression of religion in the public square

They hate Christians and especially Catholic Pro-Lifers.

Barry Lynn will get his chance to tell God how he used his pastoral title to spread the gospel. It won’t be a happy meeting.

1. There shall be no establishment of a religion in the public square.
2. There shall be no prohibition of the free exercise of religion in the public square.

What more needs to be said?

Barry Lynn is still alive? Satan must not want him bringing the average IQ in hell down.
