EXCLUSIVE: Religious Freedom Restoration Act Not Introduced Into Congress, Media Spinning Story
While President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence recently spoke out in favor of LGBT rights, there has been a lot of chatter regarding the possibility of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act being instated in the coming weeks. The news around this act has stated that it would allow people to discriminate against LGBTQ people on the basis of their religious beliefs.
We spoke exclusively to a political insider close to the Trump camp who told us that, “The Religious Freedom Restoration Act has not been introduced into congress at this point.”
“There’s no plans to enforce this against the LGBTQ community as of now,” our source added, “so that’s definitely the media spinning it for propaganda.”
Our insider had more to add, telling us that, “The media is throwing this around like it’s a shot against the LGBTQ community. President Trump is not planning to reverse LGBTQ rights nor take away their right to marriage.”
“Even if this act was to be enforced,” they continued, “it has more to do with protecting churches and other religious organizations to ensure they remain tax free.”
“The media is trying to portray President Trump as anti-LGBTQ,” our insider wrapped with telling us, “and that couldn’t be further from the truth. There were many gay people working on his campaign and he was the only Presidential nominee in history to speak out for gay rights from the get go.”
I hope that both our President and Vice President continue to protect LGBTQ rights and focus on the actual problems in our country to continue to improve it.
