Any time you have a legal question, it's best to talk to a lawyer, preferably a literary attorney. Unless a member is such a person, all you'll get here is a layman's opinion, which may or may not get you in trouble.

That said, a general answer can be found here:

"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

You can write about anyplace of anyone. Just don't lie, and common sense applies. Of course you can write about rogue Christians, or rogue UN members, or rogue Boy Scouts, or anything else. Just don't use a real person as the rogue. You could even get away with this, if you told the truth, but it would [probably mean a court fight.

But if you read many novels, you know writers do this all the time. A writer who doesn't write about real places and things had better be writing fantasy, of few will read the books.

re: lawyers - I would rather listen to a literary attorney than someone on a writing forum when it comes to legal issues in writing. Obviously, some are good, some are not so good, but they definitely know the actual law better than someone with hearsay or "well, this is what happened to me!". There's also a difference between someone telling you what you want to hear and someone telling you the truth.

But it's your book - and your pocketbook.

Do you want to write about real and current organizations? In my opinion, you can write about any topic. Just try to use innovative words in your content and avoid from plagiarism.
