ASK ANNIE LAURIE – FFRF – LIVE ON AOA

Ask Annie Laurie FFRF

As you all know by now, I’m a huge fan of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.  They are and have been the biggest advocate on the planet for State/Church separation.  This Monday at 7PM we are delighted to have Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor on the show with us.

TOPIC – TEN COMMANDMENTS

Recently states have passed laws to allow Ten Commandment monuments on public school grounds under the guise of a “Historical Document”.  North Carolina law allows schools to display posters of “In God We Trust” because it represents American History.  However, this should mean that a quote from the Treaty of Tripoli displayed on a poster would be allowed as well, but that’s not the case.  The State gives the power to the school administrators and teachers on what gets displayed.

FFRF

Tennessee recently passed a law granting permission for Ten Commandment monuments as well.  All these laws are the Religious Right’s systematic efforts to erode the Constitution, specifically the First Amendment and the wall of separation. They desire to force upon all students their invisible Sky Daddy and indoctrinate children with Christianity.

Ask Annie Laurie

We will be asking Annie Laurie what we can do to help, what the FFRF has been doing and if there is a way to overturn these most recent state laws.

If you have a question for Annie Laurie, please submit it here and on Monday night we will try to get all your questions answered.

    Maybe Annie will offer her opinion of the recent AoA show featuring Dave Foda and that other guy talking about the FFRF case challenging IRC 107.

    Seems like that was just yesterday, but I guess it’s been almost 2 weeks.

    I live in a pretty religious area where I don’t have many other secular folks to engage with. I, like many others, have found an atheist community on Twitter that I love being a part of. However, I can’t help but notice the negative attitude towards feminism from a pretty big portion of twitter atheists. It seems feminism is being redefined as a movement interested in stripping right away rights from men, or women gaining privilege at the expense of men. To me this is utter nonsense, but I encounter it SO often, I’m wondering if Annie could comment on this trend and perhaps offer suggestions on how to combat it.

    I would love to be in the running for a free membership to the AA . I currently could afford it but I have decided that it’s more important to me to donate my money to the little people .

    Autocorrect slammed me again. I meant FFRF not AA. I do not need a free membership to Alcoholics Anonymous , or maybe I do and my iPhone is trying to tell me something.
