Another Commie Plot

Another Commie Plot

Uh oh. A federal judge in Wisconsin has ruled the National Day of
Prayer is
unconstitutional, saying it amounts to a call
for religious action and thus infringes on the separation of church and
state. Judge Barbara Crabb, ruling in a suit brought by the Freedom
From Religion Foundation, said "the government has taken sides on a
matter
that must be left to individual conscience." Teabaggers and other
zealously prayerful types are not pleased.
From prayer headquarters in Colorado Springs:

"Long term, this type of opinion, if not corrected on appeal, will
continue the erosion of our religious heritage and freedom.  It allows a
handful of disgruntled people to use the courts to restrict the genuine
constitutional rights enjoyed by the majority of Americans merely
because those few people claim to be 'offended.'"

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
