Meanwhile, on the religious freedom front....

A Marine has been convicted by a courtmartial for refusing to remove a Bible verse from her computer which "could easily be seen as contrary to good order and discipline."

The subversive verse? Isaiah 54:17: “No weapon formed against you shall prosper.”

Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling was demoted to private and given a bad conduct discharge. The courts have thus far ruled that the display of a Bible verse does not constitute religious practice, and thus is not protected by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Her superior ordered her to remove the verse and cursed at her while doing so.

She is appealing to the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla) has said that there is a "real and present danger" that Christianity will be labeled "hate speech" by the courts.
