American Humanist Association Tells Newly-Elected Members of Congress Not to Join Congressional Prayer Caucus

The American Humanist Association sent a letter to the winners of last night’s Congressional races urging them not to join the Congressional Prayer Caucus:

“Members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus have repeatedly introduced and supported legislation that many secular Americans feel is unconstitutional and often favors Christianity above all other religions,” said American Humanist Association Executive Director Roy Speckhardt.

“Incoming House members should know that approximately one in five of their constituents are not religiously affiliated, and even more insist on maintaining the wall of separation between church and state,” Speckhardt continued. “Secular Americans are ready to work with all members of the 113th Congress, regardless of their personal beliefs, if they agree on this basic constitutional principle.”

A quick glance at the issues the CPC is working on makes you wonder how these people ever got elected to office in the first place, considering how little they give a damn about the U.S. Constitution.
