Government should treat all of its citizens equally. No American should be made to feel like a second-class citizen on the basis of what he or she believes (or does not believe) about God or religion. When government sponsors prayer, erects religious symbols or includes worship in official activities, it sends a message that some faiths are preferred over others or that faith is preferred over non-faith. Government should be neutral on theological questions and should never send a message like this.

After the Supreme Court Ruling in Town of Greece v. Galloway, we launched Operation Inclusion, our campaign to encourage inclusive ceremonies and meeting invocations at local government meetings.
