To the Civil Servants, Employees and Contractors at JSC,
I would like to say thank you. Thank you for serving our nation through your work for NASA, and for taking a stand on behalf of all government employees and contractors and their right to free religious expression.
I was disappointed to learn that the lawyers at JSC prohibited you from using the name “Jesus” in email announcements for your Praise and Worship Club meetings. This directly contradicts NASA’s long tradition of respecting the religious liberty of its civil servants, employees and contractors—a tradition all Americans should applaud and defend.
I’m encouraged you have chosen to stand for your religious liberty rights. I’m also heartened that you are so committed that you have obtained expert attorneys to help you vindicate your rights. I want you to know that I support you and your right to freely express your religious beliefs, and to include the name of Jesus in your email announcements. I will continue to stand with you as this case progresses.
Support NASA Employees
