Over 100 conservative leaders have signed a letter urging President Donald Trump to sign an executive order on religious freedom that will protect the rights of businesses and individuals to act in accordance with their religious convictions on marriage and sexuality without fear of government backlash.
The letter was sent to Trump on Wednesday by members of the Council for National Policy, a coalition of leading social conservative activists headed by Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.
“You are doing something rare in American politics. You are fulfilling campaign promises. We thank you, especially for the steps you have already taken in your young administration to uphold our First Freedom, the freedom of religion,” a copy of the letter obtained by The Christian Post states. “We are writing to ask that you continue these efforts to defend religious freedom by issuing an executive order protecting the practical exercise of religious freedom.”
