Tony Perkins: With Trump We ‘Have Begun a New Chapter in American History’ on Religious Expression
PERKINS: "I think that this was the president at his best. This was not only a great day for the graduates of 2017, I think it was a great day for the university. And as a graduate of the Liberty University I’m -- I'm proud of where this university has come in its short tenure relatively speaking. But I -- I think the president there really set the stage. He was speaking not only to the graduates but I think he was speaking to his evangelical base across the country. And one of the things that really stuck out to me was this; he said, we will always stand up for the right of all Americans to pray to God and to follow his teachings. America is beginning a new chapter. And when you look at what we’ve seen in the last eight years, the hostility toward religious expression outside of the four walls of a church, I do believe we have begun the new chapter in American history."
