The Left has unleashed a religious inquisition on Christian judges.
It’s unconstitutional anti-Christian bigotry in the U.S. Senate.
Senator Durbin harassed one of President Trump’s judicial nominees for living out her Christian faith. Senator Feinstein astoundingly attacked, “The dogma lives loudly within you.” They questioned her fitness to serve as a judge because of her “religious beliefs” as a Christian.
Professor Amy Barrett, President Trump’s nominee to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, is eminently qualified. She clerked for the late Justice Scalia.
And she is a Christian. Being a Christian should NEVER disqualify someone from being a judge.
The Constitution is crystal clear: “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office.”
We’re taking direct action to defend Christian judges. We’re demanding the Senate confirm Professor Barrett and other Christian judges. And we’re demanding an apology. We urgently need your voice now.
As you’ve probably read , over the past few months, the ACLJ has been fighting to remove Buddhist meditation practices from public schools. Simply put, these meditation practices are religious and teach children dangerous ideas about faith, right versus wrong, and identity. More and more parents...

For years the ACLJ has defended religious organizations against discrimination. That includes churches and Christian schools.

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.
