First Freedom First

That's a new organization formed by a partnership of the Interfaith Alliance and Americans United for Separation of Church and State. I suspect I will view them very much like I do their parent organizations, agreeing with them most of the time and disagree once in a while. And as usual, I'll be happy to express both points of view.

I know, that's like figuring out which day Mike Tyson was the biggest jerk on. But I think it might be true. This story tries to tie every bad guy in their universe together in one single narrative - Bill Clinton, the ACLU, Muslim terrorists and separation of church and state. Here's their claim: A…
The Interfaith Alliance put Phill Kline's memo laying out his strategy to use churches as his campaign bank at the top of their list of the worst abuses of religion in politics for 2006. The group, which works to preserve separation of church and state, wrote "Attorney General Phill Kline often…

I'd expect you'd take much the same attitude of agreeing generally, disagreeing on specifics here, Ed. (Thus they -- and I -- are far more sympathetic to regulations against anti-gay hate speech than you are.)

They cover the full spectrum of issues, including Dominionism, LGBT issues, education, ID, 'faith-based' funding (and, Ed, surprised you have yet to comment on the book by David Kuo which strikes me as the final nail in Republicans hoping to keep control of Congress), reproductive rights, etc.

Much worth knowing.
