This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the many victories by the ACLJ in 2016. In July 2015, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire on two military sites in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He first committed a drive-by shooting at a recruiting station in a shopping center, then traveled to a United States Naval Reserve Center seven miles away and continued firing, where he was killed by police in a gunfight. Four U.S. Marines died on the spot at the recruiting... read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the many victories by the ACLJ in 2016. This year, the ACLJ was able to secure a major victory that protects the honor and respect of American war heroes. It all started nearly half a decade ago when angry atheists at the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) insisted that a WWII Memorial statue of Jesus be removed from Big Mountain in Montana. The memorial has proudly stood for over sixty years, but that didn’t stop... read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the many victories by the ACLJ in 2016. Christians and converts to Christianity face violent, hateful persecution all across the globe. They’re ostracised, attacked, imprisoned, and often killed. It’s evil. It’s horrific. This past year, your support enabled the ACLJ and our hardworking international affiliates to secure major victories for the persecuted Church. We presented oral interventions at the United Nations, read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the many victories by the ACLJ in 2016. In a major victory for Christians facing genocide in the Middle East, the ACLJ was able to celebrate a number of monumental steps forward in our ongoing fight to end the genocide and protect our fellow Christians from ISIS (Islamic State) terror. This year, multiple international bodies, including the European Parliament, recognized the “genocide against Christians.” Our... read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the many victories by the ACLJ in 2016. In January 2016, for the first time in history, a bill defunding Planned Parenthood – the largest abortion business in America – was sent to the President’s desk. It was a major victory for the pro-life movement. President Obama later vetoed this critical bill, but the fact that it reached the President’s desk is a victory in itself. As the American people continue to awake to... read more

An Ohio federal district court yesterday dismissed Michael Newdow’s lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the National Motto. As we previously noted , atheists, represented by Michael Newdow, argued that the mere presence of the National Motto on currency violates their Free Speech and Free Exercise Clause Rights. Plaintiffs asserted that carrying currency equated to governmental compulsion to speak in support of the National Motto and to bear a “religiously offensive” message, in... read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the many victories by the ACLJ in 2016. "It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble.” – Jesus, Luke 17:2. A law in the state of Georgia that prohibits the online sexual exploitation of children was challenged in court earlier this year. A defendant, who was indicted for committing this very crime, read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the many victories by the ACLJ in 2016. Attempts to delegitimize the State of Israel have grown rapidly – in the United States and beyond. Jewish students, professors, and Christians who support Israel are shunned, bullied, and at times viciously attacked. It’s reprehensible. At the ACLJ, we believe it is America’s duty to stand and fight for our greatest ally in the Middle East. This year alone we fought in numerous... read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the many victories by the ACLJ in 2016. There’s no way around it: President Obama and his Administration have waged war against faith-based organizations like the Little Sisters of the Poor. And in 2016, that war intensified – posing a large threat to religious liberty. In short, pro-life ministries – such as Christian nuns serving the poor – are being forced to pay for or provide abortion pills under President Obama’s... read more

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the many victories by the ACLJ in 2016. President Obama’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has engaged in unconstitutional targeting against grassroots conservative and Tea Party groups since at least 2011. The IRS scoured tax applications for words like “Tea Party” and even “patriot” and then made intrusive inquiries, demanding answers “upon penalty of perjury.” It was abuse like no other. And we fought back. In one... read more
