Dear Friend of CFI,
Please vote today.
We face a pivotal moment in our country’s history. The separation of church and state is suffering under the most withering attack in generations.
The Trump White House has embraced the religious right with open arms. The balance of the Supreme Court has shifted ever further in favor of religious privilege. Congress is our best, and perhaps only, chance to stop theocracy from calcifying in the federal government. It’s not an overstatement to say that our freedom from religion is at stake in this election.
And while theocratic activists batter at the wall between church and state, our government is becoming disconnected from basic facts. Career scientists are being driven out of federal agencies where their work informs life saving regulations. Propagandistic media networks spread wild conspiracy theories that become accepted knowledge in the White House. Trump lies so often and so outrageously that news outlets are struggling just to accurately cover his statements.
Your vote matters. Please vote, and help others to vote if you can. If you’d like more resources for how to register, find your polling location, or join a last-minute voter registration drive, check out Secular America Votes.
As always, thank you for supporting the separation of church and state.
