BRIEF: Statement on Coach Kennedy Case

By |2022-06-27T16:08:53-04:00June 27th, 2022|

As the Executive Director of the American Constitutional Rights Union, I commend the US Supreme Court once again for ruling on the side of the Constitution and individual rights. The Coach Kennedy case was a secular humanist and progressive socialist challenge to our very first liberty, the freedom of religion and the free exercise thereof. Coach Kennedy's actions of taking a knee in prayer after HS football games was a personal right. He did not advocate for or seek any state, government, endorsement, nor coerce anyone to enjoin with him. We have distorted the concept of Separation of Church and State, written by Thomas Jefferson in his letter to the Danbury (CT) Baptist convention. Solemn, silent, and solitary individual prayer by anyone in any venue is not a sponsorship of government religion. It is a sacred part of our Judeo-Christian faith heritage which should not be separated from any American citizen.

How The Equality Act Would Legalize Religious Bigotry

The Founding Fathers recognized freedom of expression and religious liberty as core elements of diversity and tolerance. Now, nearly 250 years later, Congress is acting to stamp them out, ushering in a new era of government-sanctioned anti-religious bigotry.

Texas county on notice after suppressing religious liberty

By |2020-09-12T12:36:19-04:00September 12th, 2020|

Texas AG Ken Paxton has sent a letter to the liberal Cameron County judge and health officials who are demanding faith-based schools stay closed. Paxton’s letter reminds them (we are paraphrasing) that the Constitution is still the law of the land and that religious freedom still extends to religious schools.

CA Court: If rioters can scream, worshippers can praise

By |2020-09-12T11:03:46-04:00September 12th, 2020|

Many people of faith want to get back to church, and some are too worried about COVID to attend in person. Both are Constitutionally protected choices. After California Gov. Newsom decided worshippers couldn’t sing, but rioters could “protest,” Sun Valley Community Church Pastor John MacArthur sued the Governor, State AG and LA Mayor over their anti-indoor service restrictions. A judge familiar with our first freedoms sided with the faithful.

Compare and contrast: religious liberty

Last week the Supreme Court ruled in favor of religious liberty for the Little Sisters of the Poor and Our Lady of Guadalupe School. One decision upheld the right of religious groups to be exempt from providing contraceptive and the abortion coverage, and the other confirmed that faith based schools can make faith based hiring decisions. Meanwhile, in China, its government blocked three US congressmen and an ambassador from entry because they stand firm on religious liberty.

It wasn’t just religious liberty that Chief Justice Roberts strangled

By |2021-07-20T19:59:48-04:00June 4th, 2020|

Chief Justice John Roberts ruled this week that religious gatherings have the same constitutional protections as football games or Who concerts and therefore state governments CAN limit access to worship. The Chief Justice sided with the 4 leftist judges to reach this conclusion. We wish we were making this up. This has left us gasping in surprise, but not giving up - EVER - on defending your first freedom to worship.
