Your additions to “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Protecting American Atheists” have been pouring in. Chris Prevas left some great suggestions on the Jordan Sekulow Show Facebook page about taxpayer-funded references to our religious heritage:

Some ideas for the Complete Idiot's Guide: why stop at the federal level? Many localities need to change their names to avoid giving offense to atheists (after all the US Postal Service is a gov't-owned corporation and they have post offices that carry these highly-offensive names):

  • “Providence, RI (providence assumes a God that cares about us)
  • Salem, OR (this is from the Hebrew term for peace w/ God)
  • Corpus Christi, TX (Latin for 'the body of Christ")
  • Bethlehem, PA (birthplace of Christ)
  • Philadelphia, PA (mentioned in Revelations as a city w/ a godly church)
  • St. Paul, St. Louis, St. Augustine, St. Petersburg (godly Christian men)”

For the Spanish-speaking atheists:

  • “Santa Fe, NM (holy faith)
  • Los Angeles, CA (the Angels)
  • Sacramento, CA (the holy sacrament)
  • San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, Santa Monica, Santa Barbara, San Antonio (godly Christian men/women)"

Thank you Chris. We are compiling a list of hundreds more suggestions just like this from the comments left on the Washington Post and my Facebook page, and I will include them in a post later this week. Be sure to leave your addition to “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Protecting American Atheists” on the Jordan Sekulow Show Facebook page.

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 .

Victory: Ground Zero Cross

By Jay Sekulow1406561623000

In a decision that represents a ringing affirmation of the presence of faith in the life of our nation, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected the American Atheists’ challenge to including the famed “Ground Zero Cross” in the National September 11 Museum. While the entire opinion is worth...

Claims Against the Ground Zero Cross

By Matthew Clark1404744954000

From day one, angry atheists have made outlandish claims about the Ground Zero Cross – the two intersecting steel beams in the shape of a cross that was found in the wreckage of the World Trade Center following 9/11. Not only have they made these absurd claims in public (calling it “ offensive and...
