We've been saying for 151 years that separating religion from politics makes societies fairer and protects everyone's rights. Our critics often say we want to
place unreasonable restrictions on people's ability to practice their religion. But this week the Pew Research Center has again made clear that the true threat to
religious people's rights – like those of non-believers – comes from theocrats, not secularists.
Secularism is the only way to protect rationalism in public policy, freedom from the demands of religious authorities and the right to practice religion freely for
those that wish to. It is in everyone's interests, and we hope you will continue to support our promotion of it.
