Yesterday, CAIR and Seddiq Law filed a reply in support our request for preliminary injunction in the case of Bridges v. Prince George’s County, et al. Our client, as part of a job application process for chaplain at the local jail, was asked to sign a “Statement of Applicant’s Christian Faith.” Mr. Bridges, a Muslim, would have to abandon all of his sincerely held religious beliefs in order to sign such a document. He will not do so. This type of religious test is blatantly unconstitutional. For details on the lawsuit, see our previous post here.
