Subscribe to RSS - Other Government Subsidies of Religious Institutions

The separation of church and state protects Americans from being compelled to pay taxes to support religion. No American should be forced to support religion against his or her will. Nevertheless, government policies sometimes have this effect. This category includes examples of government financial support for religion outside of the school arena.

Nativity Scenes, Menorahs And Spaghetti Monsters: Equality Is The Solution To The ‘December Dilemma’

I did a radio show yesterday with a conservative host on the topic of religious holiday displays. Although we didn’t see eye to eye on the issue, he was polite, and we had a good discussion.

During debates over this issue, it quickly becomes apparent that some misperceptions exist about Americans United’s work in this area. Let’s take a look at a few:

The Religious Right Is Alienating People Of Color

The campaigns of candidates like Roy Moore and Donald J. Trump were plagued with accusations of sexual assault and subject to moral controversy, but despite this, one particular demographic remained their strongest allies – white Christian evangelicals.

Everyone In America Knows That Roy Moore Lost To Doug Jones – Except Roy Moore

One week ago, Alabama voters sent a shockwave through the world of politics by electing Democrat Doug Jones over “Ten Commandments judge” Roy Moore to an open U.S. Senate seat.

Moore is not taking the loss well. In fact, he has yet to concede.

On election night, Moore unleashed a rant, telling his supporters, “Realize when the vote is this close that it’s not over. … We also know that God is always in control.”

The Johnson Amendment Has Survived – Thanks To You!

After a months-long fight, we have good news: The final tax bill that the House and Senate will vote on next week will NOT contain language to repeal the Johnson Amendment. A big thank you to all of you who emailed and called your members of Congress and educated your friends and family about this issue. You are the ones who won this fight.
