Sean,

Great news to share with you!

VFW declared victory today in the Federal Lawsuit (Rainey v VA) filed over allegations of religious hostility and unlawful censorship at the Houston National Cemetery.

Federal District Judge Lynn N. Hughes signed a consent decree ordering the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to:

  • lift the ban on prayer and the word “God” at national cemeteries
  • revoke national policies hostile to religion
  • reopen the Chapel at the Houston VA National Cemetery (Its identity had been changed to a “meeting facility.”)
