First Amendment Advocate, Vol. 5, No. 1, August 2004

The Newsletter of the Oklahoma Chapter of Americans United

Advocates for Separation of Church and State

“Because any exemption from paying taxes has the same economic value to its recipient as a direct subsidy from the government, the Bush campaign wants religious groups to enter the political fray -- with costs offset by the federal government.”

 

Robert Reich in the July 2004 issue of The American Prospect.

 

'If this country ever dissolves the separation of church and state, I'm out of here! I've learned a lot of things from the church, however. I've learned things I like and things I don't like. I think they are equally defining. The next book I plan to read is actually about taking Jesus back from the Right."

 

Actress Ashley Judd in the August 2004 issue of Marie Claire.

 

“Church-state separation should be valued and pursued by religion even in many of the gray areas of First Amendment questions, for it is better for the church ‘to be safe, than sorry’ when it comes to entanglements-in-the-name-of-accommodation with government.”

 

Mark Whitten in The Myth of Christian America, (Smyth & Helwys Publishing, 1999)
