People often contact "American's United for Separation of Church and State" asking "what can I do" to raise awareness about the importance of church-state separation. American's United suggested action for January:

Ask friends and family members to join the AU Action Alert email list. Church-state separation is under attack, and they're looking to expand their activist core to fight back. See details at the link below.

Tomorrow a religious exemption bill that was never considered by committee will be brought to the House floor for a vote. We need your help quickly to fight this sneaky attempt to add more religious exemptions to our general laws.

The vote is scheduled for Tuesday. We don’t have much time! Please Call, Email, and Tweet your representative now!

Do you think that the pattern of de facto censorship of atheism is the “last gasp” of the Christian religious hegemony before they are forced to engage in a more serious and thoughtful conversation about free speech in a religiously plural society?

The American Humanist Association launched their "Godless media hub", TheHumanist.com on Wednesday aimed at providing nontheists an outlet for daily original reporting and commentary on issues important to a growing godless worldview. 

In related news, congratulations to Clay Farris Naff, V.P. of Nebraska Citizens for Science, on his appointment as The Humanist Magazine's Science and Religion Correspondent!

The author makes a good point. We are living in two Americas, one progressive and the other trying to return us to their imagined conservative utopia of the 1950s. And he's right... "While we are arguing about the word God on a dollar bill, the religious right is dismantling secularism one brick at a time." The question is, which America do you want to live in and what are you doing about it?
