Religious Liberty Executive Order Nice First Step, Long Way To Go Mr. President

"Its great that the Sisters of the Poor are welcomed to the White House, but even liberal apologist Speaker Paul Ryan welcomed them to Congress for the state of the union in the face of assaults by serial church, family and child abuser former President Obama.

So gestures are great but we need directives with teeth and the Johnson law abolished!" said Eugene Delgaudio president of Public Advocate.

Surprisingly the leftist anti-God newspaper "The Hill" is accurate:

After months of rumors, President Donald Trump finally signed an executive order on religious freedom. At his press conference, he delivered forceful remarks that many conservatives have longed to hear from the president, "[n]o American should be forced to choose between the dictates of the federal government and the tenets of their faith." And the order itself includes similar language, "Federal law protects the freedom of Americans and their organizations to exercise religion and participate fully in civic life without undue interference by the Federal Government."

But when it comes to creating actual legal protections - the stuff that makes an immediate difference in the real world - the President's order is short on specifics and doesn't include half of what was in a prior draft. So while people of faith are heartened by the President's gesture, they are left to hope that this is just the beginning - not the end - of the President's efforts to secure religious freedom. In other words, they hope that this isn't just a gesture, but is a harbinger of real action to come.
