Are you saying that being Muslim is a sign of mental illness?
Mr. Nathan Mowery was working as a government contractor. To keep his job, he had to maintain a high level of security clearance. After accepting a position as a direct employee for the government contractor, he was required to complete medical processing, including a mental health exam. During Mr. Mowery’s mental health exam, he shared that he had converted to Islam. After that, the examiners asked him questions only about his religion and his religious beliefs. The government never completed his processing, which effectively made him unable to work either his former job or his new job.
Our Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America, funded by the Muslim Legal Fund of America, has been fighting for Mr. Nathan Mowery’s rights. The Constitution guarantees him freedom of religion. So why would revealing his faith effectively end his career?
On March 8, 2022, CLCMA argued Mr. Mowery’s case at oral argument before the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. We now await ruling by the Fourth Circuit.
We are not giving up on Mr. Mowery. If need be, we will continue fighting this case all the way to the Supreme Court. Let’s stand up and fight for religious freedom in this country.
