Defend a Christian Woman Court Martialed for Her Faith

A Christian woman in the military has been court martialed for her faith.

Marine Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling placed the Bible verse, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper,” (Isaiah 54:17) on her desk.

Her commanding officer told her to take down the Bible verse, calling it a profanity that we will not repeat here.

When she refused to comply with this unbelievably unlawful order, the officer threw the verse in the trash and had her court martialed.

Even worse, the court held that a Bible verse isn’t protected “religious exercise.”

It’s not only absurd; it’s dangerous for religious liberty in the military.

Now the case is in military appeals court, and we’re fighting back.

We’re representing key Members of Congress, preparing to file a critical amicus brief to aggressively defend the religious liberty of those who defend our freedoms.

We need you to join our Committee to Protect Religious Liberty in the Military.

ACLJ Stands on the Law In Response To MRFF Attacks

By Skip Ash1531490400000

I must confess that I am an unabashed fan of Yogi Berra. In his own inimitable way, he was a master at re-formulating the English language. He could encapsulate more common sense in one, often humorous, stream-of-consciousness quote than almost anyone I know of. My choice for today is: “It’s déjà

Equating Christians in Uniform with Jihadists

By Skip Ash1527602400000

In yet another unhinged rant , Mr. Michael L. “Mikey” Weinstein, founder and president of the inaptly named Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), has once again claimed that the sky is falling in the U.S. military. And, once again, he has moronically equated sharing the Gospel of Jesus...
