Public Expression of Religion Act

From a Liberty Counsel email:

From Mat Staver
Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

Jay, I just received wonderful news that Sen. Sam Brownback is urging his colleagues to allow a vote on the Public Expression of Religion Act (PERA)–a measure that sailed through the House 244-173.

Passage of PERA would eliminate the awarding of attorney’s fees to groups challenging the constitutionality of displays on public property. Groups like the ACLU have made millions of dollars using the threat of monetary awards to intimidate officials into removing Ten Commandment monuments, Nativity scenes, crosses, or the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance.

++ Emergency Petition Presentation Announced!

Jay, Sen. Brownback and others believe there is still time to pass PERA before Congress adjourns. That is why I am announcing an emergency petition presentation to Sen. Brownback’s office during the first week of December!

I would like to present the Senator with a minimum of 150,000 petitions supporting PERA, but I need your help!

Over the next two weeks I am asking members of our Liberty Counsel team to do two very important things:

++ Action Item #1–Alert Your Friends

To reach our 150,000 goal, I am counting on your help in getting our message to your friends and family. Please forward this message to 25-30 friends urging them to be a part of this presentation by adding their name to our petition:

++Action Item #2–Contact your Senators

While Sen. Brownback is appealing to his colleagues to allow a vote on PERA, you can do the same thing by calling your Senators and urging them to support a vote on PERA.

To contact your Senators, call the Capitol Switchboard:

Jay, passage of PERA represents an important step in defeating the ACLU. That is why it is so important that you rally your friends to be part of our upcoming petition presentation, and call your Senators!

Thanks so much for standing with Liberty Counsel!

This bill is a very important and much needed peice of legislation. While it has an uphill battle to pass this Congress, if it is left to the upcoming Congress it is sure to die out. Take action now and contact your Senators to support PERA.

Linked from Jay's StoptheACLU; this is one of the most important bills to come through Congress in a very long time and could finally be the end to the ACLU as we know it.
