A federal institution, the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum, just kicked out an entire group of pro-life students and their chaperones simply for having a pro-life religious message on their hats. It’s absolutely outrageous, it’s unconstitutional discrimination, and the ACLJ is fighting back.
Via American Center for Law and Justice – ACLJ’s website:
The Smithsonian Institution, as a federal entity, receives upwards of $1 billion from the government every year. It states on its website that they “welcome all people to explore” its museums, apparently just not kids with pro-life views. This was a clear-cut First Amendment violation, not only of their freedom of speech but of religion as well. The federal government simply cannot ban speech with which it or its employees disagree.
A government institution cannot censor an individual’s speech, much less speech from the inherently Christian pro-life position. We have helped individuals with similar cases in the past. The law is clear: “The government may not suppress or exclude the speech of private parties for the sole reason that the speech is religious.” Shurtleff v. City of Boston.
Kudos to the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).

According to Newsweek, The Smithsonian released a racist chart linking qualities such as self-reliance, the nuclear family, objective rational thinking, math, and hard work as qualities of “whiteness.”
The article asserted the phenomenon is called institutional capture, which refers to what happens when organizations get caught in a moral puritanical movement and lose sight of their primary missions—as places of knowledge, objective learning, and the free exchange of ideas.
However, after backlash, the Smithsonian removed the chart breaking down ‘whiteness and white culture’ in the US.
Folks, once again when rational and sensible citizens speak out – things change. That’s why patriots need to stand up every time our rights are scrubbed or erased. We must not zip our lips when our precious Constitution is slashed and wounded. “We the People.”

Folks, do you know what else is outrageous?
An American self-proclaimed atheist man in Florida has threatened to sue government city officials if he is denied a permit to put an obscene 6-foot statue of a pink penis in public places in several cities in the Sunshine State based on a bizarre Japanese religious holiday that celebrates a male’s genitals. Moreover, he opposes religious symbols on public properties.
Citizens, pray and unite.
