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.

The motto of the United States Army Chaplain Corps is Pro Deo et Patria, Latin which means “For God and Country.” As the Army is the oldest branch of the U.S. military, that motto is significant, for the spirit and the meaning of that phrase is not only a part of the U.S. Army—it is foundational to...

Remembering Those Who Have Died

By Wesley Smith1590170281327

America, sleep soundly tonight. The Soldiers of Bravo Company will tuck you in with the power of freedom and all that it offers. They will ask nothing in return of you and it is likely they never will. When you see these few, these happy few, tell them you love them for their sacrifice and that you...

Court Shuts Down Atheist’s Attack on “God” in U.S. Citizenship Oath

By Jordan Sekulow1589471111870

Once again, extreme atheists are trying to take God out of another sacred American institution – this time suing to have “so help me God” ripped out of our oath of allegiance for new citizens. A U.S. Court of Appeals rightly rejected the claim. Olga Paule Perrier-Bilbo, a self-affirmed atheist who...

Defeating Nazi Germany: Lessons 75 Years Later

By Erik Zimmerman1588973176587

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and everything else going on in the world today, the fact that today is the 75th anniversary of V-E Day—the Allied defeat of Germany in World War II—will not receive the level of attention that it otherwise would have. There are many important lessons that today’s...
