Religious schools exist to promote the faith of the faith traditions that sponsor them. Often, religion permeates every subject. Religious groups have the right to open schools, but they have no right to expect the taxpayers to support them. Religious schools should be supported by the members of the faiths that sponsor them. Vouchers force everyone to support religious education. In addition, vouchers threaten the public school system by draining needed funds away from these institutions – even though public schools do not discriminate in matters of religion and serve 90 percent of America’s schoolchildren.

The Religious Right Is Alienating People Of Color

The campaigns of candidates like Roy Moore and Donald J. Trump were plagued with accusations of sexual assault and subject to moral controversy, but despite this, one particular demographic remained their strongest allies – white Christian evangelicals.

Everyone In America Knows That Roy Moore Lost To Doug Jones – Except Roy Moore

One week ago, Alabama voters sent a shockwave through the world of politics by electing Democrat Doug Jones over “Ten Commandments judge” Roy Moore to an open U.S. Senate seat.

Moore is not taking the loss well. In fact, he has yet to concede.

On election night, Moore unleashed a rant, telling his supporters, “Realize when the vote is this close that it’s not over. … We also know that God is always in control.”

The Johnson Amendment Has Survived – Thanks To You!

After a months-long fight, we have good news: The final tax bill that the House and Senate will vote on next week will NOT contain language to repeal the Johnson Amendment. A big thank you to all of you who emailed and called your members of Congress and educated your friends and family about this issue. You are the ones who won this fight.

Roy Moore’s Defeat Exposes The Religious Right’s Moral Vacuum

“Ten Commandments judge” Roy Moore wasn’t the only loser Tuesday night. He dragged plenty of leaders and followers of the Religious Right down with him.

Moore’s candidacy was a moral test for the Religious Right. The question was simple: Would the men and women who lead and join groups that are allegedly obsessed with “morals” and “values” continue to back Moore even in the face of credible charges of sexual assault and harassment against teenage girls?

Roy Moore Won’t Be Joining The U.S. Senate. Here’s Why That’s A Good Thing

The people of Alabama did America a favor last night by voting against Roy Moore for a seat in the U.S. Senate. Moore is just what we don’t need right now. His disdain for fundamental American values – from religious freedom to civil rights and equality to the rule of law – makes him a danger to our democracy.

Americans United knows Moore all too well. He’s been a strident voice against church-state separation for decades, and we’ve fought back and won against many of his reckless actions.
