TAKE ACTION: Keep the Ten Commandments out of Arizona public schools!

Arizona lawmakers continue to insist on chipping away at the wall that separates state from church. Shortly after introducing the wildly unconstitutional bill that would prohibit satanic displays on public property, lawmakers in Arizona advanced an equally unconstitutional bill that would allow the Ten Commandments to be displayed in public school classrooms.

Despite what some Arizona lawmakers want you to believe, Senate Bill 1151 runs directly counter to American principles and our secular Constitution. The bill’s sponsor incorrectly assumes a prior case ruling that displaying the Ten Commandments in public school classrooms is no longer good law. The ruling from this particular Supreme Court case in fact stated that “the pre-eminent purpose for posting the Ten Commandments on schoolroom walls is plainly religious in nature.” This remains the law of the land today— and Arizona lawmakers need to hear it!

Write your legislators to let them know that Arizona’s public spaces are not open for their religious proselytizing. The bill has been advanced out of committee, so we need your voice to ensure that it meets its demise on the Senate floor.
