Mayor Bloomberg, Don’t Shut Out Faith On 9/11

Date: 08/29/2011

A version of this post appears on the Fox News Opinion page .  You can read it here, but I also suggest checking out the comments there.  They make for fascinating reading. Through three terms as mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg has consistently fought for the greatest possible inclusion of the greatest number of New Yorkers in virtually every area of city life. That is what makes his decis ...

Congratulations to David Ramadan

Date: 08/25/2011

David Ramadan has won the Republican primary for the 87th District in Virginia. David is a conservative Republican and I probably disagree with him on most issues, but he deserves kudos for his victory especially in the light of a vicious opposition campaign by Jo-Ann Chase, whose entire platform was one large smear campaign accusing David Ramadan of being a jihadist. In general the Republi ...

Date: 08/15/2011

I want to share with you a victory we have achieved in our efforts to protect the rights of those who wanted to show a powerful documentary marking the anniversary of 9/11 in several parks in New York City. You may recall the post a couple of weeks in which I announced that the ACLJ was representing the Christian Action Network (CAN) in this case . CAN had been denied permission to utilize a ...

NYC says No to 9-11 Documentary

Date: 07/28/2011

I just wrote about a disturbing new lawsuit by an atheist organization that is trying to stop the display of a cross at Ground Zero - part of a museum being built to commemorate the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001. You already know that we will be filing an amicus brief backing the constitutional display of that cross in court. We will be representing former NYC firefighter and first respo ...

So, it's Ramadan, you've fasted all day, but now it's sundown: What's for dinner?!!!

Date: 07/28/2011

Each night during the Islamic festival of Ramadan, faithful Muslims are allowed to break their day-long fast with festive meals, to which family, friends and neighbors are often invited. If you're not Muslim, don't worry -- the Koran does not require fasting of you. Of course, if you are a Christian, the Bible does. But to Muslim faithful, fasting daily during the month of Ramadan is seen as an ...

Standing with 9-11 Hero Tim Brown to Stop Ground Zero Mosque

Date: 07/15/2011

Just a few days ago, I posted an update concerning our legal case challenging the construction of an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero in New York City.  The court ruled that our client, Tim Brown, a 9-11 first responder and firefighter, did not have legal standing to file our lawsuit . The court got it wrong. I want you to know that we are already preparing our appeal. And, soon I will let you ...

Back to Court to Stop Ground Zero Mosque

Date: 07/11/2011

We're going back to court in our legal challenge to stop the building of an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero in New York City. As you may recall, we provided arguments in March in New York State Supreme Court in our case. On Friday, the court issued its decision declaring that our client, 9-11 survivor and firefighter Tim Brown, lacked legal standing to challenge the politically motivated decis ...
