Angry atheists are again trying to ban the Bible in the military.
The vitriolic, anti-Christian Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) – which calls the Bible a symbol of “religious oppression” – has forced three Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals and a military base to ban the Bible from displays honoring veterans. Now they’re trying to ban Bibles – placed by the Gideons – from VA hospitals.
The Bible shouldn’t be banned from “Missing Man” displays, which honor our MIA and POW soldiers. The Bible shouldn’t be banned from veterans’ hospitals. Banning the Bible dishonors their service to our nation, and targets Christian soldiers as second-class citizens.
MRFF extremists call Christians in the military “monsters who terrorize” and constantly attack the religious liberty of the brave men and women in our Armed Forces.
We’re fighting back, sending critical legal letters to the VA. Take action with us now.

ACLJ petitions aren’t merely names on a page but powerful tools used with governments, the media, and courts to focus attention on injustice and create real-world change. Here's how:
First, we can directly and immediately alert individual Members of Congress and other government officials of the size and scope of the public support for our initiatives. Unlike, say, White House petitions – which at best generate a response from low-level staffers – our most successful petitions have generated direct White House, State Department, and congressional responses at the highest level.
Second, we alert members of the media and can help drive national news stories as petition signatures grow.
Third, petitions not only influence foreign governments, they can provide aid and comfort to persecuted people abroad.
Finally, you can directly participate in the most critical court battles of our time. Your signature - your voice - can be represented in briefs to the Supreme Court and to federal courts across America.
