Those members of America’s community who are religious should be preparing themselves for attacks from an administration run by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, according to the political editor for the Federalist, John Daniel Davidson.
He commented on this week’s 850th anniversary of the martyrdom of St. Thomas Becket, the archbishop of Canterbury who was assassinated by “followers of King Henry II of England” over his opposition to the king’s assertion that the king deserved a higher allegiance than God.
It was in the news nearly a millennium after the fact because President Trump’s administration issued a proclamation honoring Becket as “a statesman, a scholar, a chancellor, a priest, an archbishop, and a lion of religious liberty.”
