The elevated number of attacks against our religious liberty are almost hard to imagine considering America was founded on this vital concept. A principle at a high school in Texas threatened to sabotage a Valedictorian’s naval academy appointment because he referenced God and the U.S. Constitution in his remarks. What’s more, the power to his mic was turned off when he began to stray from the approved speech. Also, just recently a statement was released from the Obama Administration that if the religious liberty amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2014 is presented to the President for approval in its current form, the President’s senior advisers would recommend that the President veto the bill. Both of these issues are just the tip of the iceberg and we cannot dismiss them.
We never to intend to attack any specific party or person, we let the facts speak for themselves. If ever there was a time to be informed, engaged, and action-oriented – the time is now. Please take a minute to read the following articles.
The onslaught of egregious attacks against our Judeo-Christian heritage and religious freedom is too important to ignore. Let’s pray and let our voice be heard on these critical issues. We can assure you that we are mobilizing prayer for these situations and alerting our network of legislators to these critical issues so they can be engaged in their respective states. We will not let up, or give up – the future of this nation is too important.
Valedictorian’s Career Threatened For Standing Up For Constitution And His Faith In Jesus
A Texas high school principal threatened to sabotage a valedictorian’s appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy after the student delivered a speech that referenced God and the U.S. Constitution, the boy’s attorney alleges. It seems he is being punished for being both smart and good.
Hiram Sasser, director of litigation with the Liberty Institute, said Joshua High School principal Mick Cochran threatened to write a letter to the U.S. Naval Academy disparaging the character of Remington Reimer.
“It was intimidating having my high school principal threaten my future because I wanted to stand up for the Constitution and acknowledge my faith and not simply read a government approved speech, the teenager said. Read FULL ARTICLE
Breaking: Obama Threatens Veto of Religious Protection for Military
Breitbart News reported last week that Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) passed an amendment in the House Armed Services Committee protecting religious speech of service members in the military. President Barack Obama has now threatened to veto the bill if it passes the full House and Senate.
The White House released a Statement of Administration Policy (SAP) on H.R. 1960, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2014. Among other items, the SAP includes as an objection to the bill:
Expansion and Implementation of Protection of Rights of Conscience of Members of the Armed Forces and Chaplains of Such Members: The Administration strongly objects to section 530, which would require the Armed Forces to accommodate, except in cases of military necessity, “actions and speech” reflecting the “conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs of the member.” By limiting the discretion of commanders to address potentially problematic speech and actions within their units, this provision would have a significant adverse effect on good order, discipline, morale, and mission accomplishment.
The SAP includes a veto threat: “…if the bill is presented to the President for approval in its current form, the President’s senior advisers would recommend that the President veto the bill.”
