Speaking at a religious freedom summit at the United Nations, President Donald Trump announced that the United States would spend $25 million to protect religious freedom, sites, and relics around the world.
The president also announced that the U.S. is forming a coalition of businesses for the protection of religious freedom in the workplace.
Good news for Christians here and abroad.
“The United States is founded on the principle that our rights do not come from government,” the president said. “They come from God. This immortal truth is proclaimed in our Declaration of Independence and enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Our founders understood that no right is more fundamental to a peaceful, prosperous, and virtuous society than the right to follow one’s religious convictions.”
The president urged every nation to protect religious freedom. He also explained what true tolerance means.
