U.S. Marine Court-Martialed For Posting Bible Verses, Vows To Fight All The Way To The Supreme Court

In 2013, United States Marine Monifa Sterling was stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. Her superior walked by her workstation and found bible verses posted. He took offense to her religious expression and ordered her to remove the bible verses.

The verse that offended her superior the most was from Isaiah. “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.” According to the Daily Caller, Sterling’s superior didn’t like the “tone” of the verses that she had chosen to display in her workplace. Sterling refused to remove the bible verses and her superior ripped them off the wall and threw them in the trash.

Instead of the Marines punishing the superior for unjustly censoring Sterling and infringing on her 1st amendment rights, Sterling was court-martialed for “disrespecting an officer” and “disobeying a lawful order.” She appealed the court martial and was recently denied by both the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals and the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

Sterling has teamed up with First Liberty, an organization dedicated to fighting for the preservation of religious freedoms. First Liberty has vowed to take the fight to the Supreme Court. “This is shameful,” First Liberty CEO Kelly Shackelford said. “It’s wrong and it sets a terrible precedent, jeopardizing the constitutional rights of every single man and woman in military service. We will appeal directly to the U.S. Supreme Court. This cannot be allowed to stand.”
