CAIR Decries Trump Pledge to ‘Destroy’ Separation of Church and State

WASHINGTON, D.C.(ENEWSPF)–February 2, 2017 — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today decried President Donald Trump’s pledge to “totally destroy” the Johnson Amendment, which prohibits churches from engaging in political activities such as endorsing or campaigning for political candidates.

“Destroying the separation of church and state, the foundational concept upon which our nation, our Constitution and our democracy were built, would be the beginning of the end for the religious freedom we all cherish,” said CAIR Government Affairs Director Robert McCaw.

The Washington-based civil rights and advocacy organization is asking community members to report any bias incidents to police and to CAIR’s Civil Rights Department at 202-742-6420 or by filing a report at: http://www.cair.com/civil-rights/report-an-incident/view/form.html

CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
