On Monday, President Donald Trump delivered a truly historic speech at the United Nations in New York, and it was virtually ignored by the drive-by and fake media. The speech was on religious liberty, soul freedom and freedom of conscience. I have been waiting for years, even decades, for an American president to so articulately set forth the bedrock foundation upon which our Constitution and our freedoms are built.
President Trump delivered the speech I would have wanted to deliver if I ever had been given the opportunity to do so. He began by proclaiming, “The United States is founded on the principle that our rights do not come from government; they come from God. This immortal truth is proclaimed in our Declaration of Independence and enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Our founders understood that no right is more fundamental to a peaceful, prosperous and virtuous society than the right to follow one’s own religious convictions.”
