 Secular Coalition Explains Concerns about Church/State Separation

Last week, Sheridan Media reported the Secular Coalition for America plans to organize lobbying efforts within the state this month as part of a nationwide campaign to push back against religious infiltration of governmental legislation. Lauren Anderson Youngblood, SCA communications manager, said Wyoming, like the rest of the nation, sees its fair share of religious influence in government.

Youngblood said that while U.S. history is not lacking references to religion, the founding fathers were very careful when making governmental blueprints to leave religion out of the picture. Furthermore, the U.S. Supreme Court has affirmed the sentiment that church and state should be separate.

Youngblood said a common misconception about the coalition is that it's comprised of staunch atheists. That, she said, is far from true, and the coalition's organizational efforts are intended for the benefit of all citizens.
