Trump is in Iowa, desperately seeking more Christian conservatives:

“I will protect… because we’re not being protected,” Trump said, referencing Christians and religious liberty at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Forum. He vowed his first priority would be to “preserve and protect our religious liberty.”

But like a lot of other politicians, he hasn’t said what he would do.

He has never endorsed any practical measure to protect the liberty of Christians losing their livelihoods because they cannot treat gay unions as marriages.

If you live in Iowa, ask Trump about the First Amendment Defense Act. He has not yet weighed in.

For that matter, neither has Carly Fiorina.
