This act is the thin end of the wedge.

Stop Pledge Protection Act
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Dear Secular Coalition activist,

Although the House Judiciary Committee failed to vote out HR 2389, the so-called Pledge Protection Act, with a 15-15 tie vote, the House leadership is expected to bring the issue for a floor vote this week.

As we have stated in previous alerts, the House leadership wants to strip all federal courts,
including the U.S. Supreme Court, of the power to decide the Constitutionality of the Pledge
of Allegiance or its recitation. If they succeed, you could lose your right to challenge government sponsorship of religious exercises.

Please take a stand today against the Pledge Protection Act. For more resources and a
sample letter concerning this issue, please visit our Web site:

Best regards,

Lori Lipman Brown, Director

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
