Military chaplains are facing anti-Christian attacks for praying.
A group that constantly and viciously attacks Christians in the military demanding senior chaplains (including the two-star Air Force Chief of Chaplains) be investigated and punished for praying in uniform . . . at a religious freedom event.
They actually claim chaplains use Christianity “as a weapon to intimidate, menace, harass, subdue, and terrify their otherwise helpless armed forces subordinates.”
It’s ludicrous and dishonoring to those who serve our nation.
We’ve defeated these unconstitutional attacks before. Our senior military team – including a Former Senior Ranking Army Chaplain at the Pentagon – is fighting back, preparing critical legal letters. Add your name now:
To: The Department of Defense (DOD)
Protect religious freedom in our military and honor our chaplains. Do not allow anti-Christian groups to use the DOD as a weapon to eviscerate religious freedom in the Armed Forces.
In the United States, believers and churches enjoy certain protections and rights secured by the U.S. Constitution and statutes in the face of discrimination and mistreatment by the government. From its founding, the ACLJ has fought to protect those rights for believers and churches. Now we’re...
The ACLJ is filing a lawsuit today on behalf of a church in northern Virginia. As we told you , Alive Church of the Nazarene was told if they wanted to utilize the property that they own, then they needed to get a liquor license. You read that correctly. If they want to use their own land for...
A church in northern Virginia is being asked by Prince William County – one of America’s richest counties in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. – to get a liquor license to function as a church on their property the way it lets breweries and wineries function. Think about the absurdity of that. The...
In the City of Ocala, Florida, we are currently in a legal battle at the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals over a flawed federal district ruling declaring that government officials can no longer encourage citizens to pray amid a difficult time in their community and volunteer chaplains can no...
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.
