    An Alabama school district decided to halt its decades-old practice of reciting the Lord’s Prayer over a loudspeaker before high school football games after atheists complained — but that did little to stop fans from still belting out the biblical invocation. The fascinating moment, which united players, fans and parents from both teams, came on Friday night when the announcer called for a moment of silence in place of previous student-led prayer at Smiths Station High School games, AL.com reported. The Lee County School System decided to halt the Lord’s Prayer tradition after the Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist...

    Atheist groups are unhappy with President Donald Trump for allowing a weekly Bible study to take place in the White House.The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) said the Bible study might even be an illegal use of taxpayer funds, the Washington Times reported Thursday."If those officials want privacy, the solution is pretty damn simple: Study the Bible in your private capacity, not in your official capacity and at your government desk," the group said in a statement Thursday. "Do it on your time, not the taxpayers'. In short, get off your knees and get to work."The person behind the Bible...

    MADISON — At all hours, strangers phone Anne Nicol Gaylor's Madison home, always desperate.The caller one recent morning was a middle-aged woman with a 14-year-old pregnant daughter."What clinic will she be using?" asked Gaylor, 83, jotting down the response and the cost of a second-trimester abortion ($875)."If we helped with $300, do you think you could find the rest?" Gaylor asked.After the call, Gaylor opened a checkbook for the Women's Medical Fund, a Madison nonprofit that has helped pay for abortions for 34 years.

    Freedom From Truth: FFRF is beyond all reason by Daniel Clark “Our purpose is to protect the constitutional principle of separation between state and church,” At least that’s what Freedom From Religion Foundation Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor wrote in a thinly veiled threat to the Allegheny County Council, to dissuade it from installing a plaque in the county courthouse that says “In God We Trust.” That principle, like everything else the FFRF stands for, is a lie. If Gaylor and friends can point to anything in the U.S. Constitution that prohibits a Pittsburgh courthouse from acknowledging God, this particular resident...
