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.
During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we noted the disgraceful way that Freedom From Religion Foundation (“FFRF”) was attacking local officials who had invoked a day of prayer during the national emergency. FFRF sent threatening letters to governors and mayors, attempting to silence their First...
