The First Amendment Takes a Hit in New Jersey

The Civil Rights Division of the New Jersey Attorney General's office has announced a "Finding of Probable Cause" that the United Methodist Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association violated state discrimination laws by refusing to rent a church-owned pavilion to two women for a civil union ceremony.

After the women filed a complaint, the Association stopped allowing public use of the pavilion. The clash between same-sex unions and religious freedom is spreading across America, and even our churches are not insulated from anti-Christian hostility.

Read our News Release for more details.

We must work together to win against the rising tide of rabidly anti-faith, anti-God, anything-goes secularism. This is why we must have the resources to face these challenges, continue to represent our many clients and advance our God-given mission in 2009.

If we weaken because our adversaries' strategies are getting darker and darker, we will lose the right to live by our values and to speak God's truth in public. The result is simply unthinkable.

Liberty Counsel does not charge clients for representation. We depend on individuals, groups and churches who care about advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of human life and the traditional family.

December is a critical time of the year for the mission of Liberty Counsel. This month will largely determine how much we can accomplish in the upcoming year. We ask that you prayerfully consider joining with other friends of Liberty Counsel by giving your best possible year-end gift.
