First Amendment Archives

President Obama is the “Angel of Death”? Give me a break!

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I think you would agree with me that businesses have the right to hire and fire as they see fit. Fox News, per usual, has manufactured a controversy here, and that’s all there is to it. But since you […]

Juan Williams’ Firing: Political Correctness Over the Top

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, it’s the ultimate in political correctness.  Losing your job for being honest – for expressing a feeling – a thought.  The problem is that in the case of former NPR journalist Juan Williams, an honest thought – expressing a […]

Ground Zero: No Place for a Mosque

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, No one is advocating that mosques should not be built in New York City.  There are many just as there are churches, synagogues and other places of worship. What we’re saying, on behalf of our client – a NYC […]

Back in Court on National Day of Prayer

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   While we don’t agree on the outcome of the Supreme Court decision in the case of  Christian Legal Society v. Martinez – there’s one thing that I suspect we see eye-to-eye on.  And that’s the fact that this […]

The Supreme Court Missed the Mark

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   This decision is both disappointing and troubling.  By a vote of 5-4, the Supreme Court dealt a damaging blow to First Amendment law for religious organizations in the case of  Christian Legal Society v. Martinez.    The Supreme […]

Barry, Thanks for Standing Up for NY Student

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,  Thanks for standing up for the rights of our client, Raymond Hosier, who was punished by a New York school district for wearing a Rosary to school.  By the way, I never considered your position on this issue “odd” […]

Jay: You Are Right

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, you were certainly right to support a student’s right to wear a rosary in spite of a public school’s “anti gang symbol” policy–and indeed to challenge the facial constitutionality of the school’s fundamentally flawed approach to restricting First Amendment […]

Is This REALLY True? Do We Have Agreement on the Rosary Case?

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I did a double-take today when I read a report in the Washington Times that you believe the New York school district was wrong in suspending our client, Raymond Hosier, for wearing a Rosary to school.   In punishing Raymond, […]

Court Clears Way for Student & Rosary to Return to School

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,  It took only a few hours before a federal court in New York acted on our request for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) and cleared the way for our client, 13-year-old Raymond Hosier of Schenectady who had been suspended indefinitely […]

The Rosary – A Gang Symbol?

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, With confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Kagan set to begin June 28th, we’ll soon find out how much we will learn about Supreme Court nominee Kagan. I want to turn now to a story developing in New York […]

Don’t Punish Organizations For Their Beliefs

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, you’re right.  This is a very important case.  In your assertions, though, you minimize the threat that blind enforcement of “non-discrimination” policies can pose to expressive associations such as the Christian Legal Society (CLS) who seek to ensure that […]

Discrimination and DeWeese — Both Need to Go

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I’m not saying that faith-based social service groups do not do good work. Some do great work, and many do this work with private funding in order to maintain their religious independence. Other groups that want to receive taxpayer […]

Keep the Faith & the Ten Commandments Poster

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   I’m surprised you are not applauding the first year record of President Obama’s White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.  The White House touts its first year accomplishments and says it has “brought people together across religious lines” […]

It’s Heritage, Not Religion and while we’re at it . . . Merry Christmas!

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,   Nice try.  But, you’re not going to convince me that displaying our national motto or the words from the Pledge of Allegiance somehow constitute a government-sponsored religion. To the contrary, inclusion of these words in the Capitol Visitor […]

Cross Should Survive Challenge

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I believe the Supreme Court ultimately will conclude that the plaintiff did not have legal standing here – that this challenge was legally flawed from the very start.    Merely being ‘offended’ does not give the plaintiff a legal […]

From Commandments to Pledge – Federal Court Win Upholding “Under God”

posted by Jay Sekulow

Ok, Barry – looks like we won’t agree on the Ten Commandments and what we consider to be the proper and constitutional displays present in Judge DeWeese’s courtroom.   Let’s try this one.    A federal district court in New […]

White House ‘Flagging’ Operation Disabled

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, it looks like the White House got the message:  its email ‘flagging’ operation appears to have been disabled.   As I reported to you last week, the White House launched in early August what can only be described as […]

Vouchers Work & Clear Constitutional Hurdles

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, I don’t believe that school vouchers run afoul of the First Amendment, and neither does the Supreme Court.  In Zelman v. Simmons-Harris, a school voucher case, the Supreme Court explained that its Establishment Clause jurisprudence makes it clear that: […]

Volunteering Works, Vouchers Don’t

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I think it’s great that so many Americans want to volunteer for good causes, and I have no problem that many want to work with faith-based groups. Americans can volunteer for and/or donate to the charity of their choice; […]

Peeps Put Focus on Landlord

posted by Jay Sekulow

I like Peeps, too.  Barry, the key issue is whether there is religious discrimination going on when it comes to the issue of the Easter Peeps. If the landlord is simply enforcing in an evenhanded manner a religion-neutral lease provision […]

Let Us Revisit Terrorist Investigations

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I’d like you to revisit a little blog-versation we had a few months back.  A Department of Homeland Security memo had suggested that it was important for law enforcement agents to concern themselves with domestic, not just foreign, terrorist […]

Liberty University to Democratic Students: Drop Dead

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, just a few days ago I was a participant in an event on “church politicking” at the National Press Club here in Washington.  The event was reported by your friends over at the Christian Broadcasting Network.  The focus of […]

From Graduation, to Supreme Court Vacancy

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, the big news, of course, is the reported retirement of Supreme Court Justice David Souter.  The news comes just 102 days into the Obama Administration and sets the stage for President Obama to move to put his liberal stamp on […]
