Victory: US Navy reverses unlawful order banning troops from indoor Mass, religious services

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 9, 2020 ( LifeSiteNews) – The United States Navy has revised its policy prohibiting active service members from attending in-person religious services. Those who disobeyed and attended church services had risked court-martial. The move is seen as an important victory on behalf of religious liberty by Navy personnel affected by the previously enacted ban, and by those who fought on their behalf.
