VP Mike Pence Delivers Some Good News About One of Trump’s Top Priorities to Religious Conservatives

Mike Pence

Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the first annual Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom this week where he delivered a speech where he stated that the Trump administration is fully committed to protecting and furthering religious liberty in America.

The concept of freedom of religion is one that has come under fire in recent years, especially for Christians who are seeking to live out their faith in every area of life, including their businesses. Persecution has been coming down hard from government officials attempting to force some folks to support sinful lifestyles they disagree with, causing these individuals to either lose their businesses or to compromise their belief system.

Here are the details of Pence’s speech.

They were addressing representatives from over 80 nations “to discuss challenges, identify concrete ways to combat religious persecution and discrimination, and ensure greater respect for religious freedom for all,” according to the State Department. Victims of persecution also gave first-hand accounts of the brutality they faced.

“This event truly reflects President Trump’s ironclad commitment to protecting this important liberty,” Pompeo said, which “is not exclusively an American right. It is a God-given, universal right bestowed on all of mankind.”

Pompeo announced the release of the Potomac Declaration and the Potomac Plan of Action, which reaffirms the United States’ stance and “recommends concrete ways the international community and governments can do more to protect religious freedom and vulnerable religious communities.”

Here’s a few direct quotes given by Pence during the speech discussing how America would lead the fight for religious liberty by example for the entire world:

“The American founders enshrined religious freedom as the first freedom in the Constitution of the United States, and America has always and will always lead the world by our example,” Pence said, adding that cultures with no respect for religious liberty are more violent.

“There is no escaping the plain fact that North Korea’s leadership has exacted unparalleled privation and cruelty upon its people for decades,” he said.

Pence also warned that Western democracies also threaten religious freedom, highlighting the fact that “just 70 years after the Holocaust, attacks on Jews, even on aging Holocaust survivors, are growing at an alarming rate” across Europe.​

It’s well past time for someone to stand up for those who believe that faith in Jesus Christ is more than just something you believe privately. God makes it clear throughout the Bible that obedience to His Word is something that goes beyond private thought life. It touches every area of life.

If unbelievers don’t like that, they can shop elsewhere. That’s the beautiful thing about having a free market. Vote with your dollars.

LA County Now Lifting Ban On Indoor Worship Services ‘To Align With Recent SCOTUS Rulings’

Published

on

Los Angeles County has decided to finally follow the Constitution and honor the First Amendment right of freedom of religion — a right handed down by God Himself — and lift a ban on indoor church worship services over the weekend after recent Supreme Court rulings in favor of houses of worship. Gee, how nice of them to allow folks to do what God commands them to do and hold services inside a building like normal people. This should never have been something that needed a Supreme Court ruling. The Constitution is pretty clear that the right to freely expression religion is protected. via Daily Wire: “The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with recent Supreme Court rulings for places of worship,” the county said in a press release Saturday. “Places of worship are permitted to offer faith-based services both indoors and outdoors with mandatory physical distancing and face coverings over both the nose and mouth that must be worn at all times while on site. Places of worship must also assure that attendance does not exceed the number of people who can be accommodated while maintaining a physical distance of six feet between separate households.” “Public Health strongly recommends that places of worship continue to hold services outdoors, with physical distancing and the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community,” the release continued. “Because Los Angeles County is experiencing an unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, every effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community is critical. This is an absolute win for religious liberty, one of the most important and fundamental rights our republic was established upon. In fact, it was our forefathers seeking after religious…

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…
