Another Cause Worthy of Support>>>>

I am passing on this email in support of this excellent cause, because here in the United States of America, We do have Freedom of Religion--We Are a Secular Nation, We Were Always A Secular Nation and We Shall Continue to Be a Secular Nation. After all, today the majority of U.S. Citizens are Christian, tomorrow--who knows. If we start enforcing Christian Doctrine today, what Doctrine will be enforced tomorrow?? This is Why we must stay a Secular Nation.

Take Action! Tell Congress Not to Send Federal Funds to Religious Schools

Keep Religious Institutions Out of the Public Piggy Bank!

The Religious Right wants billions of dollars of federal education funds to line the pockets of private religious schools. Senator Alexander (R-TN) and Rep. Messer (R-IN-06) introduced the “Scholarships for Kids Act” redirecting $24 billion in federal education funds to private schools, including religious schools.  Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) introduced the Creating Hope and Opportunity for Individuals and Communities through Education, or “CHOICE Act
” which redirects an additional $11 billion to private and religious schools.
Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black wrote "The 'establishment of religion' clause of the First Amendment means at least this… No tax in any amount, large or small, can be levied to support any religious activities or institutions.” Vouchers also infringe on one of the most dearly held principles of religious freedom, that the government should not compel any citizen to support a religion with which he or she disagrees, or even a religion with which he or she does agree.

Voucher programs, like those proposed by these bills, violate these central tenets of our Constitution: they use taxpayer money to fund religious education. Tell Congress this is unacceptable.
Write Your Senator and Representative!

Stand up against public funded religious education! Tell your Senator and Representative that public funds should never support religious schools.
