Should the Texas governor be promoting a Christian prayer rally?
A group of atheists and agnostics is suing Texas Gov. Rick Perry for organizing and promoting a prayer rally that it says violates the constitutional principle of separation of church and state.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation filed its lawsuit on behalf of members residing in the Lone Star State, accusing Perry of providing official recognition to a religious event. It says the governor is “giving the appearance that the government prefers evangelical Christian religious beliefs over other religious beliefs" and that "nonbelievers are political outsiders.”
