Ten Amendments Day: Sunday May 7th

 

10 Amendments Day

 

Counter to the Religious Right effort to attack and undermine Separation of Church and State and the Constitution & 10 Commandments Day

 

What itís all about:

 

American Atheists (http://www.atheists.org/) in coalition with Beltway Atheists (http://groups.myspace.com/beltwayatheists) will begin tabling (setting up a tent, and a table with information) in Washington DC (on the National Mall in front of the Dinosaur Museum) on Ten Amendments Day, Sunday May 7th, 10 am Ė 5pm.

 

Why:

 

Itís important to make people aware of the Constitution, and the Jeffersonian Wall of Separation of Church and State, being attacked and undermined by the Religious Right in the United States.

 

How:

 

American Atheists and Beltway Atheists are going to be providing people with important information about Separation of Church and State, as well as information on the Bill of Rights.We will also be asking people how they feel about Separation of Church and State, in attempts to engage them on the issue at hand.

 

In Response to:

 

The Religious Right and their unrelenting message of divisiveness, shameless religious promotion in politics and courts, movement to replace the laws of men with the laws of god, such as; RLUIPA, GA Bible Classes, GA & Ohio & Missouri & Mississippi 10 Commandments in Public Buildings, ACLJ & ADF trying to push religious bigotry by suing public schools on behalf of Christian student groups in the name of Freedom of Speech, and Religion.
