We have confirmed that Congressman Walter Jones will be appearing on our radio broadcast today.  As many of you know, Congressman Jones is the primary sponsor of the request from the White House for an Executive Order protecting Chaplains and their ability to pray according to the dictates of their heart.  I am optimistic with the overwhelming support that we have received from around the country.   We will also be joined by Randy Singer from the North American Home Mission Board.  Randy serves as their General Counsel and has been very concerned about Navy Chaplains who have been denied the right to pray according to their faith commitments.  Randy also serves as a member of our legal advisory board here at the American Center for Law and Justice. 

 

On the legal front, we are working on our Reply Brief in the Operation Rescue v. National Organization for Women case.  We are optimistic that we are once again going to carry the day at the Supreme Court of the United States.  At issue is the application of the RICO statute to pro-life protests.  We won this case at the Supreme Court of the United States two years ago with an 8-1 victory.  I anticipate getting the same results here.  Our brief is due in about ten days.  We are working diligently on the brief.

 

I am on my way to our office in Washington, D.C. where I will appear tomorrow on C-SPAN to discuss with Michael Newdow the case that he has involving the Pledge of Allegiance.  The U.S. District Court in California has once again ruled the Pledge unconstitutional and that case is on its way to the Supreme Court of the United States.
