Obama admin: We’ll do business with you if your theology agrees with ours


Monday, July 21, 2014

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kristen Waggoner regarding President Obama’s executive order issued Monday that requires contractors to conform their theology to the administration’s position on sexuality if they wish to do business with the federal government:

“President Obama’s overreaching executive order is the latest example illustrating that the very government that the Constitution charges with protecting religious freedom is now the primary threat to religious freedom. The administration has brazenly bypassed Congress and declared that the only religious non-profit organizations it will do business with are those willing to line up with the administration’s doctrine and theology on sexual behavior. That’s the kind of government entanglement with religion that the Founders sought to prevent and that the First Amendment prohibits.”
 
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
