"An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist believes that deed must be done instead of prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanished, war eliminated." -Madalyn Murray O’Hair

The West Virginia House of Delagates passed House Bill 4135 unanimously (with two abstaining) on January 21, 2014. This bill establishes a West Virginia Day of Prayer on the same day as the National Day of Prayer. The bill
can be read in its entirety here.
A state-established Day of Prayer? Really? What happened to the separation of church and state?
We’re fighting this bill here in West Virginia, and, really, this kind of thing should be fought around the world. There is already a nation-wide Day of Prayer, and this ushering of religion into politics is unacceptable. Religion should have absolutely no role in politics.
You can help me out by signing this petition against the bill. If I can help you fight religion by posting about your efforts to fight it, never hesitate to send me info about it. Send me your stores, ideas, news, petitions, images, anything to help us fight this together.
