The Trump administration is taking a religious position, which by the way flies in the face of the Bill of Rights. Note the very first words of the first amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

To favor a religious view based on the teachings of a minority religious belief was not what the founders had in mind.
