The ardently anti-Christian Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) continues to attack and threaten small towns and average Americans for exercising their constitutional freedoms. Now, they have targeted some of the most powerful and successful college football programs in the country.
We are once again fighting back, preparing a comprehensive legal letter to each of these college football programs outlining exactly how the law and the Constitution actually protect the religious liberty of students and team chaplains. Just as we’ve done for years, we continue to defend the Constitution against FFRF’s unconstitutional attacks.
Just this week, we helped achieve another major victory in a years-long battle with FFRF over the World War II memorial statue of Jesus in Montana memorializing the sacrifice of veterans – heroes in the fight for freedom.
This is just the latest in the string of common sense, constitutional victories against the Freedom from Religion Foundation and the other angry atheists attacking our American heritage and religious liberty.
One of FFRF’s quirky slogans is “Nothing fails like prayer.” The reality is nothing fails like a Freedom From Religion Foundation lawsuit. Yet, their threatening letters cause many localities to cave for fear of being forced to pay for the expense of defending against even a frivolous lawsuit.
Sadly, the Freedom from Religion Foundation is not alone. Other angry atheist groups have made bogus claims in court.
The American Atheists claimed that members experienced “dyspepsia, symptoms of depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish.” Why? Because of the Ground Zero Cross at the 9/11 Memorial museum. We filed an amicus brief in that case and the court agreed with us.
In yet another case, the American Humanist Association claimed that its members were “shocked” and “upset” that a cross could be used to honor our nation’s veterans for nearly 90 years.
The attacks continue, but as you see from the not-so-greatest hits above, FFRF and its angry atheist allies only win through fear and intimidation – when no one fights back – not in federal court.
That’s why we continue to fight back. Join us, and sign our legal letter to colleges across the nation to defend religious liberty on campus and protect chaplains as a new school year begins.
A little girl had her Bible confiscated by school officials. How could this still be happening in America? From our founding in 1990, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has been at the forefront of defending the First Amendment rights of students to pray, evangelize, read their Bibles,
This week – approximately ten (10) months following implementation of an outright ban on worship in churches – California has finally lifted the unconstitutional restriction. As you might recall, on July 1, 2020, California issued a mandate that places of worship “must therefore discontinue singing...
The wave of progressive ideology is continuously being pushed on our children in public and private schools. This is something we have fought against since the 90s. In a recent case in which we assisted, a public school drama teacher in Florida decided she was not going to allow a student to...
Within the first year of the ACLJ’s founding, our Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow was already fighting at the United States Supreme Court for students’ right to religious freedom under the First Amendment within the public school system in Board of Education v. Mergens (1990) . And we won. Unfortunately,
