Defending Our Nation Means Defending the Cross

Atheist organizations are ramping up their aggressive tactics to remove any symbol of our history and heritage – this year they are targeting our military.

At Camp Pendleton, an atheist group is challenging a cross put in place by a few Marines in honor of four heroes who died in Iraq. An atheist group says the memorial sends a message of "exclusion." And on the battlefield in Afghanistan, the U.S. Army has removed a cross that's been in place in front of a chapel. An atheist group declared victory saying its removal protected "civil rights and neutrality towards religion."

Stand with the ACLJ in making sure the Department of Defense knows the law: The Constitution clearly protects the right to display a cross - a powerful symbol of hope and comfort. Add your name to our petition now.

Petition to Protect the Cross

To: President Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta

Our men and women serving in the military make tremendous sacrifices, and put their lives on the line, to defend the freedoms that our Constitution ensures. The cross displays are not only appropriate, but constitutional as well. In fact, according to a recent Supreme Court decision, the Constitution forbids the type of “relentless and all-pervasive attempt to exclude religion from every aspect of public life.” The cross – a historic symbol of sacrifice – must remain.

By David French1421694905032

At 9:30 p.m. on Saturday night, a packed theater in Franklin, Tenn., was completely quiet. As the credits rolled, some folks were filing out, but many more were standing, still looking at the screen, honoring the man whose life they’d just seen portrayed on the silver screen. Before the movie, I’d...

A Time for Thanks; A Time for Resolve

By Jay Sekulow1417019056106

In many ways this has been a good year at the ACLJ. There is much to be thankful for—we’ve won key, precedent setting victories in court here at home, and we’ve even made progress fighting Christian persecution abroad. At home, we’ve defended the rights of Christian students and professors, won a...

A Brief Veteran’s Day Reflection

By David French1415735598773

Though my own military service is winding down, for now (I transferred to the Individual Ready Reserve earlier this year), I’m still a veteran. That’s a part of my identity now, and it will be for the rest of my life. Military service is becoming less common with each American generation .
