Concerned Women Celebrate Major Win for Religious Liberty at the Supreme Court

By | LBB, News and Events, Religious Liberty | No Comments

Washington, D.C. – Today, the United State Supreme Court upheld (7-2) the constitutionality of a memorial cross on public land (The American Legion v. American Humanist Association). Penny Nance, CEO & President of Concerned Women for America (CWA) had this to say:

“Today’s decision is an affirmation of the principles and freedoms our veterans have fought and died to protect. CWA members around the nation are celebrating the Court’s acknowledgment of a most common-sense reality, that this cross honoring our veterans is in no way religiously coercive.

“We are encouraged to see some justices reject the notion that a person’s distaste for a faith symbol merits the tying of government, and the American people through their tax dollars, via years of litigation.  We are grateful the Court is sending a clear message that it will no longer tolerate the sort of hostility towards religion the American Humanist Association and its sympathizers try to promote.”

CWA Joins “Pro-Life Rally Against Bullying” and Addresses Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims’ Behavior

By | News and Events, Press Releases | No Comments

Washington, D.C.  Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims (D) shared videos of himself ranting and berating praying women and girls outside of a Planned Parenthood in Philadelphia. In his videos, he intimidated and harassed the women and offered to pay his viewers to identify them by name, find out where they live, and then to harass and endanger them.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, issues the following statement in response:

“Watching these videos of an elected official in the state of Pennsylvania harass and berate peaceful, praying women and girls should infuriate women all over this nation. Regardless of ideology, faith, or political party, this type of bullying behavior is unacceptable in this country. People of faith have every right to pray in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic. The faith-based community has come together over this incredibly offensive behavior and wants bullies like Brian Sims to know that when you attack one of our own, you will have to answer to all of us. This behavior is not OK.”
