Trump's Latest Move to Protect Religious Rights of Employers
The Trump Administration has announced a new proposal allowing faith-based groups that receive contracts through the Department of Labor to hire and fire based on their religious beliefs.
"Today's proposed rule helps to ensure the civil rights of religious employers are protected," said US Secretary of Labor Patrick Pizzella. "As people of faith with deeply held religious beliefs are making decisions on whether to participate in federal contracting, they deserve clear understanding of their obligations and protections under the law."
Rev. Franklin Graham said, "I'm grateful to President Trump and his administration for proposing a rule to protect employment decisions of religious organizations, specifically those who may contract with the government."
