ADF signs letter to Pentagon regarding Navy Bible policy
Friday, September 05, 2014
“Chaplains on Navy bases and ships aren’t illegal, and neither are Bibles in Navy lodges. Rather than surrender to the misguided demands of activists with inaccurate views of the very Constitution that our service men and women fight to preserve, the Navy should adopt a policy in keeping with the First Amendment – that donated Bibles are welcome in Navy lodging as they always have been. As the coalition letter indicates, support for such a policy has deep and undeniable roots in both American history and Supreme Court precedent. We encourage the Navy to take a strong stand in the face of this hollow threat.”
