The Latest from Americans United
- Blog PostThe American people are clear: They don’t want to see their houses of worship politicized – polls on this issue aren’t even close. The vast majority of U.S. faith leaders agree.
- Blog PostFunny thing about the Religious Right’s “get-your-kids-out-of-those-godless-socialistic-government-schools” movement: It’s a flop. I started hearing it in the late 1980s, and it hasn’t caught on. Over that time, the number of children attending public schools has remained constant: 90 percent.
- Blog PostA cross can’t represent all veterans. Crosses are fine for private memorials, but when a sectarian symbol like the Bladensburg Cross is erected and maintained by the government, it sends the message that Christianity has some sort of special relationship with the state. It also excludes veterans who aren’t Christian.
- Press Release
Prominent faith leaders today joined advocacy organization Americans United for Separation of Church and State to shed needed light on Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker’s outrageous views that would require federal judges to have a “biblical” worldview.
