The Christian Post has published side-by-side op-eds from both presidential campaigns on the subject of religion in America. For people of faith, the Trump and Biden candidacies present a present a true divergence of choice on matters of principle.
President Donald Trump is the Pro-Life candidate in 2020. As Vice President Mike Pence explained in his Christian Post op-ed explains, Trump has reinstated the “Mexico City policy” banning the taxpayer funding of abortion in foreign countries, signed an Executive Order to protect babies born alive, and signed a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. The Biden-Harris ticket, on the other hand, supports abortion up to the moment of birth, funding for Planned Parenthood, and a repeal of a measure that restricts most federal funding for domestic abortions.
The Trump administratin has defended religious liberty for the past four years, undoing the Johnson Amendment to allow pastors toe exercise their First Amendment rights and fighting to end Obamacare mandates that force businesses and religious institutions to violate the tenets of their faith. In contrast, a Biden Administration would force faith-based organizations like The Little Sisters of the Poor to provide abortion-inducing drugs and devices.
As Cancel America’s candidate, Joe Biden is a direct threat to the freedom to worship. While Black Lives Matter is free to riot in the streets, states with Democratic governors like California have restricted the ability of churches to hold services. In contrast, President Trump has declared churches and houses of worship to be “essential” in a time of pandemic.
America was founded on Judeo-Christian values that are enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. In Joe Biden’s op-ed in The Christian Post, religion is a justification to advance Cancel America’s policy agenda such as open borders and single-payer healthcare. In contrast, Mike Pence writes, “the foundation of America is freedom, but the foundation of freedom is faith.”
In truth, faith is why America is Good.
