The ACLJ's national petition campaign to urge President Bush to protect prayer by military chaplains continues to generate support and the nomination of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court is about to take center stage.

The ACLJ is approaching 200,000 names on our national petition urging President Bush to issue an executive order to ensure that military chaplains can pray according to their faith.  We are working with members of Congress on this critical issue and are hopeful that President Bush will take action to protect the constitutional rights of our military chaplains to meet the spiritual needs of our men and women on the front lines around the world.

At the same time, anticipation is growing for the confirmation hearings to begin January 9th for Supreme Court nominee Judge Samuel Alito.  It will be an intense time before the Senate Judiciary Committee and our Washington, D.C. team continues to prepare to ensure that Judge Alito not only gets a fair hearing - but is ultimately confirmed by the Senate.

As 2006 approaches, it is a busy time at the American Center for Law and Justice.  We will keep you posted about these issues and many others as the new year unfolds.
