Talk To Action:

Every year, there are controversies over the "National Day of Prayer," which has somehow become the exclusive province of the Dobson empire. This year it is being held on May first -- and the fireworks have already started. But lest you think that this is an obscure bit of Bush administration taxpayer financed pandering -- note that even Democratic governors in blue states -- such as the Democratic governor of my state, Massachussetts, Deval Patrick -- are issuing proclamations as drafted by Focus on the Family.

The problem, of course, is much larger than a single day of pandering by politicians to the Religious Right. Mother Jones points out there are even efforts to exclude non-Christians from the National Day of Prayer!

And our President thinks of the Constitution as providing an "important bridge between church and state." Um, Mister President? Thomas Jefferson said it was a wall, not a bridge, and as an architect of both Monticello and the nation, he ought to know the difference.

As First Freedom First co-director Barry Lynn points out in this video, the Religious Right and their battle against church-state separation impacts Americans in their everyday lives. More of this program is available here. (h/t Progressive Media):
