First Freedom

Consider signing this petition at It is part of a national public education campaign being undertaken by The Interfaith Alliance Foundation and Americans United for the Separation of Church & State to emphasize the importance of religious freedom to policy makers and the media.

It reads in part:

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.
