The so-called “Military Religious Freedom Foundation” has called for the court martial of Maj. Gen. Craig Olson for speaking at a National Day of Prayer event, calling the personal testimony and prayer “brazenly illicit and wholly unconstitutional, fundamentalist Christian proselytizing.”
Liberty Counsel whole-heartedly disagrees and has offered the major general pro bono representation.
A call to prayer and discussion of a personal faith testimony in uniform is in keeping with America’s history, such as the calls for corporate prayer set forth by George Washington in his 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation and President Obama’s 2014 National Day of Prayer Proclamation.
Letters from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation and other atheist groups are nothing but paper tigers. These complaints concerning military code violations are disinformation used to intimidate service men and women into silence.
