NASA censors ‘Jesus’ from emails to make Muslim outreach top priority


NASA is not so scientifically enlightened after all. This is how Muslims silently exercise their stealth jihad. Bit-by-bit, one stone at a time, their influence to corrode and bring the infidel down, until the kafir has no fundation to stand on, leads them closer to their goal.

Muslims always (pretence) argue that Jesus is a prophet in Islam and that Muslims believe in Jesus. It’s part of the taqqiyya appeasement method when dealing with the infidel. So why then are they so eager to ban all traces of Christianity and all mentions of Jesus, unless it insults them? Demanding a ban on Christian symbols, words, practices would then constitute blasphemy. But reality is, Jesus is derided in Islam. Therefore, his name and followers must be avoided at all costs.

NASA Censors ‘Jesus’ from Employee Emails

Liberty Institute responds to NASA censorship with demand letter. 

by Liberty Institute

Liberty Institute attorneys issued a demand letter on Monday to the legal team at NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas after it banned a group of civil servants, employees and contractors from using the name “Jesus” in email announcements.

“It is illegal for the government to censor the name of Jesus in employee email announcements,” said Jeremy Dys, Senior Counsel for Liberty Institute. “Censoring a religious club’s announcement to specifically exclude the name ‘Jesus’ is blatant religious discrimination.”

According to Liberty Institute attorneys, NASA’s actions violate not only the U.S. Constitution, but also NASA’s own history of free religious expression.

SUBJECTED TO CENSORSHIP

The censorship started in 2015 when members of the NASA JSC Praise and Worship Club submitted an announcement for their club meetings to JSC Today, the center’s daily email newsletter.

The Praise and Worship Club began in 2001 and consists of 16 civil servants and contract employees who gather during their lunch hour to pray, sing, and discuss matters of their Christian faith.

“The purpose of our club is simply to encourage one another, pray together, and worship God,” club spokeswoman Sophia Smith said. “Our meetings are open to anyone who would like prayer or is interested in what we do.”

Sophia Mao Smith, P.E., is a member of the Johnson Space Center Praise and Worship club and has a 30-year history at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. She began her career at the Space Shuttle Program and currently works in the International Space Station Program Office (ISSPO) at NASA.  

Just like many other clubs at NASA JSC, the Praise and Worship Club regularly submits announcements for club meetings in JSC Today.

When the club members submitted their announcement for the May 28, 2015 edition of JSC Today, they included the theme for the upcoming meeting—“Jesus is our life!” After the ad ran, NASA’s lawyers at the JSC contacted club organizers, informing them that the name “Jesus” could no longer appear in any future announcements.

The NASA attorneys claimed that including “Jesus” was “sectarian,” possibly creating the perception that NASA was endorsing Christianity over other religions and non-religion, and thus violating the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

“It was shocking to all of us and very frustrating,” Smith told Fox News on Monday. “NASA has a long history of respecting religious speech. Why wouldn’t they allow us to put the name Jesus in the announcement about our club?”

LIBERTY INSTITUTE STEPS IN

The Praise and Worship Club agreed to comply temporarily with NASA JSC’s ban, but immediately sought legal assistance from Liberty Institute.

Liberty Institute sent a demand letter to the legal team at NASA JSC on Monday, February 8, 2016. In the letter, Liberty Institute attorneys inform NASA JSC’s legal team of the grave violation of their employees’ First Amendment rights, and threaten a federal lawsuit should NASA fail to correct the problem.

NASA’S LONG TRADITION OF EMPLOYEE RELIGIOUS SPEECH

NASA’S actions against the Praise and Worship Club violate more than just the Constitution—they also violate NASA’s own history of permitting the religious speech of its employees. For example,

  • In February of 1962, Scott Carpenter quipped, “Godspeed, John Glenn” as the first American orbited the earth.
  • Astronaut Gordon Cooper selected the name “Faith 7” for the Mercury spacecraft that would orbit the earth 22 times in May of 1963, in part, because of his personal faith in God.
  • In 1968, Apollo 8 astronauts (Bill Anders, Jim Lovell, and Frank Borman) read the Creation account from Genesis 1 while orbiting the moon on Christmas Eve. (The infamous atheist, Madalyn Murray O’Hair, sued NASA over this—and lost—in O’Hair v. Payne, 1969.)
  • Buzz Aldrin famously celebrated communion on Apollo 11.
  • President Nixon led the nation in prayer in April of 1970 as American anxiously awaited the return of Apollo 13.

“NASA’s public history is one of freedom of religious expression for its employees,” said Kelly Shackelford, Liberty Institute President and CEO. “If NASA could accommodate the religious expressions of past civil servants, why not a praise and worship club’s simple announcement?”

  1. Some leaders in NASA and those Muslims are minds and hearts of the devil. They are afraid of Jesus just like those evil spirits that requested Jesus not to cast them out as those evil spirits surely know the judgement is terrible. Now again by the spirit and power of those evil, they are trying to avoid Jesus!

        OK, now that I’ve recovered from my fits of laughter, I’ll press on. ☺
        Isn’t it incredible how stupid people can be with their conspiracy theories? Reminds one of some other ridiculous people, who reckon that the Jews are behind everything bad in life, and who just know that the world has been waging a War Of Aggression against their innocent community for 1400 years. Oh, crap, here comes another ROFL spasm heading my direction. OUCH – too much laughter hurts too much…
