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.
The ACLJ represents three churches in a lawsuit challenging California’s ban on all singing and chanting at indoor worship services throughout the state. We recently filed a supplemental brief asking the court to prevent California from enforcing the ban while the case moves forward. In an earlier...
Does a person of faith have to leave his religious commitments at home when he enters the workplace? Does he have to place job duties ahead of his religious ones? What if an employer assigns a task that would require one to violate one’s religious beliefs? Unfortunately, far too many people (both...

Fundamental to American civics is the right of citizens to vote, and often with that right comes the responsibility of serving on a...
The Supreme Court last week made a major move in upholding America’s constitutional norms, including the importance of the First Amendment’s protection of the free exercise of religion. Last week, the Court blocked enforcement of Governor Cuomo’s hyper-restrictive and highly discriminatory rules...
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.
