This week, we wrote a letter to Senator Mitch McConnell. He had seen fit, on the Senate floor, to claim to know what nonreligious Americans feel about the current slate of Supreme Court justices and their disturbingly harmful decisions in many cases that favor faith over secularism. Cases like Carson v. Makin, Kennedy v. Bremerton, and Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization are now hammers smashing against the wall between government and religion that is meant to exist thanks to the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights.
There are times when it is nice just to be recognized for existing, but this is not one of those times. Together with our 20 member organizations, we let the senator from Kentucky know that we disagree with his assertion of our beliefs. You can read the original letter below, or find a copy of it here.
