ACT NOW: Alabama’s not done turning back the clock on civil liberties

The Alabama Legislature is fast-tracking a bill that would allow state-funded public schools to indoctrinate students as early as sixth grade with bible classes. We need your help to stop this bill in its tracks.

SB 14 is part of Project Blitz, the Christian fundamentalists’ nationwide legislative push to inject state legislatures with a whole host of religious bills. It is an unvarnished attack on American secularism and civil liberties — those things we most cherish about our democracy and must tirelessly defend.

While politicians often claim that these laws are intended to teach the bible in the context of U.S. history, we know their true agenda is to abuse their access to young and impressionable children and indoctrinate them with religious orthodoxy. Public school bible classes have been tried across the country and have invariably ended up unconstitutionally promoting religion. Click here to learn more.

This bill has already passed the Alabama Senate and the House Committee on Education Policy and is headed to the full House for a vote. Please use our automated system to ask your representative to vote no on SB 14.
