1. Action: Is America the land of the free, including freedom of religion or only freedom if you believe as I do? That’s the essence of the Hobby Lobby case and other far right issues that affect women’s healthcare and wellbeing. Our foundation has been clear: Separation of church and state. As America fights for democracy around the world, they should insure a basic freedom to their own citizens.
Result: We are becoming a theology, rather than a democracy. Many want religion to be the basis for our beliefs and teachings in schools, businesses, etc.
2. Action: Speak up with your votes and keep America free for all—for Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists and any other religion someone wants to practice as long as it doesn’t interfere with the safety or beliefs of others.
Result: America would be a stronger, more diverse country that continues to be based on the principles our founding fathers intended, not some fringe element of society.
