As you all know by now, I’m a huge fan of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. They are and have been the biggest advocate on the planet for State/Church separation. This Monday at 7PM we are delighted to have Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor on the show with us.
TOPIC – TEN COMMANDMENTS
Recently states have passed laws to allow Ten Commandment monuments on public school grounds under the guise of a “Historical Document”. North Carolina law allows schools to display posters of “In God We Trust” because it represents American History. However, this should mean that a quote from the Treaty of Tripoli displayed on a poster would be allowed as well, but that’s not the case. The State gives the power to the school administrators and teachers on what gets displayed.
Tennessee recently passed a law granting permission for Ten Commandment monuments as well. All these laws are the Religious Right’s systematic efforts to erode the Constitution, specifically the First Amendment and the wall of separation. They desire to force upon all students their invisible Sky Daddy and indoctrinate children with Christianity.
Ask Annie Laurie
We will be asking Annie Laurie what we can do to help, what the FFRF has been doing and if there is a way to overturn these most recent state laws.
If you have a question for Annie Laurie, please submit it here and on Monday night we will try to get all your questions answered.
