Statement from Susan M. Shaw, Professor, PhD, about joining MRFF’s Advisory Board:
“I am honored to serve on the advisory board of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation because of its deep dedication to the separation of church and state and religious liberty (including freedom from religion) in the military. As a Baptist minister, I am deeply committed to these principles that are rooted in Baptist history and the history of this nation. The MRFF is an important watchdog organization that helps ensure military personnel receive equitable religious treatment as guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution. No person in the military should have these rights abridged or infringed upon, and the MRFF works to support the religious freedoms of all serving in the military.”
