I love this part: “In response to announcements about the pending executive order, faith leaders sent two letters to the President asking him to include language that exempts faith-based organizations from the regulations he will impose.
“Neither letter requested new protections; rather, signatories asked that they be allowed to continue using the hiring practices they have since Obama took office, said Michael Wear, a faith policy strategist, former director of faith outreach for Obama’s 2012 campaign, and organizer of one letter. The letter he helped coordinate includes 14 signatures from people sympathetic to the Obama administration who ‘love the president and pray for the president,’ he said.”
