Act now and sign the First Freedom First Petition
From: The Interfaith Alliance and First Freedom First <eshutt@interfaithalliance.org >
Date: Aug 2, 2006
Subject: Act now and sign the First Freedom First Petition



Members and Friends of The Interfaith Alliance,
ACT NOW and sign the petition


The founders of our nation believed that all Americans should have the right to worship according to their own beliefs, or not to worship at all. So strong was their commitment to religious freedom that they enshrined it in the first sentence of the Bill of Rights.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

This constitutional guarantee is often known as the "first freedom."

Religion is a deeply personal matter. Americans must be free to practice their religion without coercion. Government exists to provide for the general well-being of all people, and its workings must be independent of specific religious doctrines. Simply put, there must be a separation of church and state.

If we do not stand together as a nation, we stand to lose this fundamental freedom.

Please join us in signing
the First Freedom First petition at:
