GODLESS WEDNESDAY: Secular Coalition Announces Freethinking Caucus in Congress

The Secular Coalition for America announced that there is going to be a congressional caucus for "free-thinkers." The newly announced Congressional Freethought Congress even has a mission statement:
  • First, to promote public policy on the basis of reason, science, and moral values;
  • Second, to protect the secular character of our government by adhering to the strict constitutional principle of the separation of church and state;
  • Third, to oppose discrimination against atheists, agnostics, humanists, seekers, and the nonreligious, and to champion the value of freedom of thought and conscience worldwide; and
  • Fourth, to provide a forum for Members of Congress to discuss their moral frameworks, ethical values, and personal religious journeys.
Jerry McNerney (CA-9), the only member of congress with a PhD in mathematics, has agreed to be the co-chair of the Freethought Caucus. I am not sure who the other member of the Caucus is, but presumably that in addition to Jared Huffman (CA-2) they will be from another state other than California!
