DEFENDING THE WALL -- NO SUBMISSION

   We the undersigned petition our government and courts to support and defend the constitutional principle of state church separation embodied in the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and to reaffirm the sentiment expressed In the Treaty with Tripoli, "that the government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion."

    We petition our government to recognize openly the rights of all Americans to be free from the imposition of religious rituals, dogmas, censorship, prayers, and superstitions in public affairs, government institutions, private bedrooms, and in personal medical decisions.

    We demand recognition of the civil rights of Atheists in these United States, Including the right to enjoy the ultimate freedom -- freedom of the mind.      LINKS
