First Freedom First Petition

If you have not already done so, please drop by First Freedom First and sign the petition to reaffirm that well-known Wall of Separation.

Here's what the petition says:

We, the undersigned, call upon elected and appointed officials to join us in reaffirming America's religious freedom by demonstrating a commitment to the following:
· Every American should have the right to make personal decisions -- about family life, reproductive health, end of life care and other matters of personal conscience.
· American tax dollars should not go to charities that discriminate in hiring based on religious belief or that promote a particular religious faith as a requirement for receiving services.
· Political candidates should not be endorsed or opposed by houses of worship.
· Public schools should teach with academic integrity and without the promotion of religious preference or belief.
· Decisions about scientific and health policies should be based on the best available scientific data, not on religious doctrine.
We join together, as the most diverse nation in the world, to commit ourselves to defending and preserving this freedom.
