Action Alert: Ask Obama to Recommit to Ending Federally Funded Discrimination

ActionalertAmericans United for Separation of Church and State has issued an action alert asking Americans to contact President Obama about ending federal funded discrimination using a handy form they have set up.

From the alert:
In a campaign speech in Zanesville Ohio, President Obama stated that: “If you get a federal grant, you can’t use that grant money to proselytize to the people you help and you can’t discriminate against them – or against the people you hire – on the basis of their religion.” Unfortunately, President Obama has not changed the policies of the previous administration that allow such discrimination and federal funds are still being expended every day under the same inadequate constitutional protections.

We encourage you to ask President Obama to clarify his comments and to urge him to stick to his promise. If he has reversed his policy position on the issue of government-funded religious discrimination, we need to know that. If not, he should take concrete steps to fulfill his pledge and end the practice of federally funded discrimination.
You can take action here.
