    for example, the President believes that the deportation of illegal aliens conflicts with Matthew 25:35-40



    2nd example

    The president believes SSM is immoral so s/he instructs the IRS to disallow tax deductions based on SSM
    The POTUS takes an oath to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States". Since the First amendment to said Constitution forbids the government from "effecting an establishment of religion", a POTUS would do better to offer a non-religious moral objection as the cause of any actions he takes in his capacity as the Chief Magistrate of the U.S.
