Pennsylvania Gets an Atheist Lobby

The Secular Coalition for America plans to launch its Pennsylvania chapter on Sunday. The group plans to directly lobby to lawmakers in the Keystone State for a strong separation of religion and government. Part of the motivation for the establishment of such a group was the “Year of the Bible” legislation that stirred up controversy earlier this year. By the end of the year, the Secular Coalition for America plans to have chapters in all 50 states. [Secular Coalition]
