Rep. Jones Thanks In God We Trust for Petition Delivery
In God We Trust's National Chairman Bishop Council Nedd and Program Director Sean Ferri¬tor continue to fine-tune legislative strategy for the Military Freedom Bill, H.R. 343. Our nationwide grassroots petition to gather public support for the legislation, better known as the "Pray in Jesus' Name" bill, continues to resonate with the American public.
"Hard-working Americans across the entire nation are appalled that hands tied when it comes to matters of faith and service to our nation," said Ferritor.
In God We Trusts continues to work closely with Representative Walter Jones, the bill's sponsor, to earn public support and to gain co-sponsors in Congress.
In God We Trust received this personal note of appreciation from Rep. Jones, for the last round of petitions which the staff personally delivered to his office on Capitol Hill.
The petition drive is still under¬way in another nationwide mailing to supporters and online through our website.
In God We Trust Calls on Obama to Lift Veto Threat
In God We Trust is calling on the Obama Administration to lift the threat of a veto of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) now.
The Obama Administration "strongly objects" to a proposed religious liberty amendment offered in the House by Representative John Fleming, M.D (R-LA) and across the rotunda by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT). "That is an outrageous position, but it's what I've come to expect from an administration that is aggressively hostile toward religious beliefs that it facing growing hostility toward their religion.
The Fleming amendment, which passed the House Armed Services Committee on a bipartisan vote, deems politically incorrect," said Fleming.
The NDAA amendments would protect the religious rights of soldiers — including evangelical Christian service members who are was included in the House-passed NDAA. (Fleming is a member of the House Armed Services Committee.) The Lee amendment passed the Senate Armed Services Committee on a bipartisan vote.
