On Thursday, May 4th, President Trump marked the National Day of Prayer by signing an executive order that allows tax-exempt churches to more actively participate in politics and could free religious organizations to deny employees insurance coverage for birth-control pills.
Trump campaigned on the promise that he would "destroy" the Johnson Amendment, which prohibits organizations that enjoy tax-free status from participating in a political campaign or supporting any one candidate for elective office. Yet, Professor Robin Wilson finds the language in the order to be so vague, that the actual impact it will have is unclear.
"I’m not seeing a lot more shield around people of faith from this," she said.
Wilson provided commentary on the executive order to both U.S. News and CBS North Carolina.
