Radical Assault on Faith in the Military Must be Stopped

Radical Assault on Faith in the Military Must be Stopped

SKIP ASH, ACLJ If there was ever a misnamed organization, it would have to be the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF). Masquerading as a religious rights organization, the MRFF’s real purpose appears to be silencing those whose religious beliefs it opposes—especially if they are Evangelical Christians. Just last week, for example, [...]

Obama’s Attack on Christians Should “Concern” You

MATTHEW CLARK, ACLJ President Obama, who won’t call out radical Islam for beheading Christians, is spewing verbal vitriol against Christians. President Obama began his remarks at an Easter Prayer Breakfast this week saying he is “concerned” about “less-than-loving” Christians. He used the day we as Christians celebrate our risen [...]

It’s Not Simply Persecution. It’s Genocide.

It’s Not Simply Persecution. It’s Genocide.

Bowe Bergdahl and Our Leaders’ Lost Honor

Bowe Bergdahl and Our Leaders’ Lost Honor

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Desertion is a very old story in the history of armies and armed conflict. Soldiers deserted from the Continental Army, from the Union Army, from the American armies in World War I and World War II — yet those armies fought on, fought well, and prevailed. An army can survive desertion, so to hear that Bowe Bergdahl has been [...]

The Obama Administration’s Slow-Motion Surrender to Jihad

The Obama Administration’s Slow-Motion Surrender to Jihad

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ If there’s one political silver lining for the Obama administration in the ongoing firestorm over handing the Taliban a substantial victory to retrieve a probable American deserter, it’s that the pundit class has been all but ignoring the supreme foolishness of administration policy in Palestine. Is the State Department [...]

Lawmaker: Obama-Clinton State Department “Misled Congress” Downplaying Boko Haram Danger

MATTHEW CLARK, ACLJ A key Senator is alleging that the Clinton State Department “mislead Congress” about the impending danger of Boko Haram and the State Department’s inability (read: unwillingness) to label the radical jihadist group a terrorist organization years ago.

More Lerner Emails, More Evidence of Washington Directed Targeting, Cover-Up

It was formulated recently against the [...]
