President Trump, his two eldest sons, Vice President Pence and wife Karen, Reince Priebus, and Justice Scalia’s widow Maureen and son Fr. Paul Scalia, and others, are praying with Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and his wife Marie Louise in the White House.

The time taken to publicly pray for the Senate confirmation and future career of man who may become one of America’s top decision-makers for decades is a momentous occasion for Christians who considered Trump’s Supreme Court pick to be a primary reason to support him.

As the Supreme Court, and lower circuit courts, have increasingly pulled America away from Biblical principles, it is refreshing to see a presidential administration’s focus turned back toward God in helping lead our country.

“If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” - Ronald Reagan

Religious freedom is not only a “precious value to the individual,” but also “an important public good that strengthens all of society.” That’s the message from Von G. Keetch, the Chief Outside Legal Counsel for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in a blogging panel at religion news website His essay is featured alongside several others in a Patheos Public Square debate about the vitality of religious freedom in the United States.

Just before the start of WWII, President Franklin D. Roosevelt authored the prologue in the Gideon Bible that would be distributed to the Armed Forces as they entered service. He wrote: "As Commander-in-Chief, I take pleasure in commending the reading of the Bible to all who serve in the armed forces of the United States. Throughout the centuries, men of many faiths and diverse origins have found in the Sacred Book words of wisdom, counsel, and inspiration. It is a fountain of strength, and now, as always, an aid in attaining the highest aspirations of the human soul."

Such strong presidential support for reading a religious book may seem anachronistic today, over seventy years later, where there are numerous calls to exclude religion from anything related to government. Indeed, just in the last few months San Diego was ordered to take down the Soledad cross, tax-free housing for clergy was struck down as unconstitutional, New Jersey banned religious holiday songs for choir students, and the Supreme Court heard arguments on the constitutionality of legislative prayer.

Despite these numerous controversies, religious practice is still robust in the United States. According to Pew Research, more than 80 percent of Americans are affiliated with a religion, and even among those who are religiously unaffiliated most have some religious beliefs or practices.

Pattern PROTECT MARRIAGE - Updated Apr. 17, 16

When the North Carolina government passed legislation that would require people to use the bathroom of their birth gender, they didn’t expect to see the backlash they are seeing now. Companies like American Airlines and Apple are threatening to pull their business from the state. PayPal won’t build its new business center in the state, and even Bruce Springsteen cancelled his show. Please sign a letter in support of North Carolina.
