Advocates for religious liberty are warning about President Joe Biden’s administration following the departure of former President Donald Trump, saying that “early indications are troubling” for their movement, The Epoch Times reports.

“Tumultuous days lie ahead as we wait to see how quickly protections for [religious liberty] groups won by the Trump administration will be repealed and replaced by coercive measures insensitive to their concerns,” Edward A. Morse, who sits on the board of directors of the Thomas More Society and teaches law at Creighton University, told the Times in an email.

He added that Biden’s healthcare policies will pose “the greatest concerns.”

Morse said: “Not only for healthcare providers with religious commitments but also for patients who desire treatment from those who share their commitments and values. Schools, including private and religious ones, will also be within the target zone in terms of accommodations based on gender. Clashes between the coercive power of government that prefers other interest groups over the interests of religious citizens will be inevitable.”

Mike Berry, First Liberty Institute general counsel, added that “While campaigning, President Biden promised that his administration will seek to roll back many of the religious liberty protections the Trump administration advanced. We anticipate a much more hostile and intrusive government than we experienced during the past four years.”
