I’ve written lots of posts over the years about state legislation that threatens to erode the wall between church and state, whether it’s making the Bible the official State Book or altering science curriculums so that public schools teach Creationism alongside evolution.
Normally, I hear about these bills second-hand, like when a local newspaper reports on it or someone writes a blog post about it — and a reader directs my attention there. There are two downsides to that: Some bills may go under the radar and I may discover these things too late to urge people to take action. I want to be more pro-active, but I need your help. Despite my best efforts, I can’t keep track of all the bills introduced in every state.
That’s why I’d like to create a taskforce in each state to help keep tabs on what politicians are doing to promote God through the government. Each group will keep an eye on their state’s legislation and alert me if there’s something our community needs to be aware of. (If you don’t know how to keep track of it in your state, I’ll show you how.)
It’ll take a little trial and error to get this right, but I’m committed to making this work.
Here’s what I need from you:
If you’re interested in participating in this project, fill out this form ASAP. I’ll put together the teams in each state (with no more than a handful of people in each) and we’ll go from there.
Thanks for your help.
