Is NASA Finally Bowing to the Name of Jesus after Censoring It?

One week after AFA's alert [about the censorship], NASA included the name "Jesus" in the Praise and Worship club's newsletter announcement

In June, 2015, members of Johnson Space Center's Praise and Worship club said attorneys for NASA's legal department told them they could not use the name Jesus in announcements appearing in the space agency's newsletters. The club's leadership was also told that "NASA would be censoring all future club announcements that featured the name, 'Jesus'." (Photo via Johnson Space Center)

Consequently, until the American Family Association (AFA) Action Alert in February, 2016, the name "Jesus" was conspicuously absent from the Johnson Space Center newsletters containing announcements from the Praise and Worship Club.

Immediately after AFA launched an Action Alert, "NASA censors 'Jesus' from newsletter," NASA responded. It would not deny our claims, but simply stated it "does not prohibit the use of any specific religious names in employee newsletters or other internal communications."

This week, NASA, sent a copy of its latest newsletter to AFA. In the February 16 issue, one week after AFA's alert, NASA included the name "Jesus" in the Praise and Worship club's newsletter announcement!

Coincidence? We don't think so...
