The Oklahoma Legislature is once more considering a bill that would require all state buildings to install giant “In God We Trust” displays. Our members helped to stop an identical bill last year, but we need to stop it again.
Please take action to help ensure that Oklahoma residents are not subjected to government-sponsored Christian proselytizing.
This bill, HB 2085, is part of a nationwide legislative push termed Project Blitz. Project Blitz seeks to inject state legislatures with a whole host of religious bills, imposing the theocratic version of a powerful few on We The People. It is an unvarnished attack on American secularism and civil liberties — those things we cherish most about our democracy and now must tirelessly defend.
While politicians claim these measures are intended to showcase the national motto or inspire patriotism, it is clear that their true purpose is to peddle religiosity to a captive audience. These laws are about advancing the Big Lie that the United States was “founded on God” or Christianity, dismantling the wall of separation between religion and government.
