URGENT -- CONGRESS SCHEDULES VOTE ON CHURCH
Capitol Hill Needs To Hear From Us Now!
A vote in the US House of Representatives on the controversial
"Houses of Worship Political Protection Act," HR 2357 is scheduled
for this Tuesday, October 1, 2002.
This bill would change the IRS code, and permit churches and other
houses of worship to engage in blatant political campaigns --
everything from raising money for candidates, to handing out
endorsements and lobbying. It would continue the dangerous trend of
turning pulpits into partisan political podiums.
* Congress needs to hear from us NOW on this important First
Amendment issue! Visit our Legislative Action page at
http://www.atheists.org/action and find out how you can contact your
elected representative. Get background and "talking points" on HR
* Make your communications count! We urge you to send faxes or
Priority Mail letters, or make personal phone calls. E-mail, while
convenient, does not have the same impact on Capitol Hill. Visit

HELP US DEFEAT HR 2357!
