GuideStone Statement on President Trump’s Executive Order on Religious Liberty

GuideStone President O.S. Hawkins expressed gratitude to President Donald J. Trump for his executive order promoting religious liberty for all Americans, including religious employers opposed to the contraceptive mandate under the Affordable Care Act, which would have required certain religious ministries to provide abortion-causing drugs or devices as part of their health plan or face crippling penalties.

“We are grateful that the President recognizes the fundamental nature faith holds in the lives of millions of Americans,” Hawkins said. “People of faith should never have to check their deeply held convictions at the door; this executive order is a smart first step to ensuring the government does not violate this first freedom.”
