Five service members ask Navy for reprieve from order banning off-base church attendance


Recommended Posts

At least five service members have hired a lawyer to fight a Navy order that bars them from attending indoor worship services to prevent the spread of the coronavirus because they believe it violates their constitutional right of religious freedom.

First Liberty Institute, a Texas-based legal office focused on defending religious freedoms, sent letters beginning Monday to five commanders, asking them to grant the service members an accommodation and to encourage the Navy to rescind the “unlawful order.” https://www.stripes.com/news/us/five-service-members-ask-navy-for-reprieve-from-order-banning-off-base-church-attendance-1.635920
