ACLU Barring Prayer in the Military



ACLU has filed a suit to end prayer from the military completely.  They're making great progress. The Navy Chaplains can no longer mention Jesus' name in prayer thanks to the ACLU and others.

Let us pray...
Lord hold our troops in your loving hands Protect them as they protect us Bless them & their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. In Jesus name, Amen.

This one is false.  The ACLU is not pursuing (and has never filed) a lawsuit seeking "to end prayer from the military completely." Navy chaplains also are not prohibited from mentioning Jesus' name in prayer, nor has the ACLU engaged in any effort to bring about that result.  (www.Snopes.com   11 April 2011)
