President Trump: Don’t Give Religious Groups a License to Discriminate

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Reverse President Trump’s executive order that exempts religious groups from anti-discrimination laws.

President Trump has recently signed an executive order granting religious groups exemption from certain laws. This move will be completely ruinous for LGBT Americans and other minority groups, as this will give businesses and government contractors license to discriminate against whoever they please and gut women’s health care with religion as an excuse.

This devastating executive order threatens decades of progress made for women’s rights and LGBT rights, allowing them to be discriminated against because of religious beliefs. This will only fan the flames of hatred and anger occurring in today’s political climate.

We cannot let this happen. Religious groups must not be given a free pass to sidestep important federal laws granting LGBT Americans and women the rights they deserve. Sign this petition to demand President Trump revoke this dangerous executive order.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. President,

The executive order granting “religious liberty” is a thinly veiled excuse for companies and contractors to discriminate freely against LGBT Americans and women, gutting their rights to health care and certain services and denying them employment and housing opportunities. It is an attempt by the religious right and ultra-conservatives to roll this country back several decades.

This order is callous and must be reversed. It is dangerous and unconstitutional to deny LGBT Americans and women the rights they deserve and have worked so hard for, and even more unconstitutional to cripple freedom of expression using religion as an excuse. Freedom of religion is the right to practice whatever one believes in, but not to discriminate. Do not give businesses and contractors license to shun people based on gender and sexual orientation.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    stop shunning people based on gender and love attractions!

  2. This is a very scary move by Trump. Separation of church and state is paramount. We do NOT want to return to the dark ages!
    Trump only means this for certain religions. Certainly the Muslim religion is not included in this, as he obviously hates Muslims. So which religions is he wanting to give these rights to? I suggest Christianity and Judaism as the main possibilities. Most of his backers are Christian or Jewish.

  3. mixing state and church – no!

  4. Kathryn Irby says:

    Discrimination of any kind is NOT “CHRISTIANITY!!”

    • Sorry to burst your bubble, but if Christianity is going to claim it isn’t discriminatory, it has to ignore certain parts of the Bible. For instance, to believe that Christianity doesn’t discriminate against gays, one has to ignore not only old testament writings that call for the execution of practicing gay men, but one must also ignore Paul the apostle’s diatribe against gay men and women in Romans Chapter 1.
      One can’t have their cake and eat it too. Most, if not all, religions have rules and laws to follow, and DO discriminate against those who don’t follow them.

  5. We won’t go backwards!
