Separation of Church & State is arguably one of the most important issues facing U.S. citizens today. Today, there are powerful, religiously-based groups that are very politically active trying to force a Christian world-view on our country. These groups would like to dictate how women should decide very personal reproductive choices. They would like to see prayer in our public schools – and not just any prayer – but their prayers. They want science teachers in public schools to teach a brand of biblically-based theology that is not recognized by mainstream scientists. They want the continuation of Faith-Based initiatives allowing them to discriminate and proselytize in the work place while receiving government support.
Americans United for Separation of Church and State is one of a very few organizations devoted to ensuring that the separation between religion and government remains strong and we are not forced to live our lives dictated by the religious right.
