  • Travis Weber, FRC’s Vice President for Policy and Director of the Center for Religious Liberty, on the Supreme Court opinion handed down today in the case of American Legion vs. American Humanist Association, in which the Court rule that a cross-shaped memorial to World War I soldiers in Bladensburg, Maryland did not constitute government endorsement of religion.
  • John Stemberger, Board Chair of Trail Life USA, on a Pennsylvania Trail Life troop that was denied a tour of a National Guard facility because of their Christian beliefs until the National Guard was threatened with a constitutional lawsuit.
