A Bill Mandating Bible Studies In Public Schools

Georgia is close to becoming the first state in the nation to pass a bill mandating the development of curriculum to teach bible studies in public schools.

Demand that Governor Perdue defend the Constitution and Georgia's citizens from the attack on the doctrine of separation of church and state.

To the delight of the radical religious right, the Georgia State Senate passed two pieces of legislation that pose a serious threat to the separation of church and state. One would create state-funded Bible classes in Georgia public schools. The second would allow the Ten Commandments to be displayed by county governments.

By singling out the Bible and the Ten Commandments as symbols to be promoted in the public sphere -- one in classrooms and the other in government buildings -- the government of Georgia is showing preferential treatment to a specific religion and violating the rights of its citizens. Both bills are on Governor Sonny Perdue's desk, and he is contemplating whether or not to sign them. That's why we need to take action today!

The religious right will stop at nothing to push their theology in the public square or our public schools. And now, they want to use public dollars to do it!

Urge Georgia's Governor to veto these bills and protect the sanctity of our nation's Constitution and the doctrine separating church and state>> http://go.care2.com/e/JPL/JW/qbGj
