The American Civil Liberties Union is not that anxious about President Trump's new "religious liberty" executive order.
ACLU had earlier indicated that it would sue if the president signed an order "that allow religion to be used as an excuse to discriminate", ending its tweet with #SeeYouInCourtAgain.
At least one expert said Trump's order appears legally sound.
FRFF, a Wisconsin-based group dedicated to the separation of church and state, filed the injunction suit on May 4, stating that the order gives religious groups preferential treatment, according to The Associated Press.
"Today's executive order signing was an elaborate photo-op with no discernible policy outcome", the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) director Anthony Romero said in a statement Thursday.
Trump is on record as saying that he wants to "totally destroy the Johnson Amendment".

With President Donald Trump's signing Thursday of an executive order easing political restrictions on churches, the LDS Church said it will continue its policies and practice of political neutrality. President Trump has been vocal about protecting churches from losing tax-exempt status if they choose to endorse political candidates.
Michael Farris, president and general counsel of Alliance Defending Freedom, a Texas-based agency that handles religious liberty cases, said the order, while well-meaning, included "vague instructions to federal agencies [that] simply leaves them wiggle room" to ignore the action. The order also provides "regulatory relief" for organizations that object on religious grounds to a provision in Obamacare that mandates employers provide certain health services, including coverage for contraception. Though the White House denied that draft was ever being considered, reports of the discriminatory order resulted in outrage that was reignited this week after a Politico story revealed Thursday's plans for a religious liberty order.
"I just don't see it, how it changes anything in particular and I think sometime a lot of these executive orders are symbolic rather than substantive", said Young.
Widely considered to be a thank-you gift to his evangelical supporters, the order "Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty" calls for all tax-exempt organizations - but more specifically, churches - to be given the freedom to engage in political activity without suffering tax penalties.
