Carnival of the Liberals #52 is now up at Yikes! This one is extra special, and not just because it is the first CotL in which I have had a contribution. No, this one is special because it honors the 60th anniversary of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. So check out CotL #52 and join me in wishing a happy anniversary to AU. I hope that they will not be necessary for another 60 years (we Americans have to come to our senses eventually, right?), but I also hope that they will be there if they do remain necessary.
Finally, if you don't already have it, pick up a copy of Piety & Politics: The Right-Wing Assault on Religious Freedom by AU's Rev. Barry Lynn. Not only is it a great read, but it demonstrates that one need not be an atheist to value church-state separation.
