Apr 4, 2016

After we announce our “I’m an Atheist and I Vote” billboard campaign, welcoming candidates to Madison, Wisconsin during the week of the Wisconsin primary election, FFRF legal fellow Maddy Ziegler describes how she got a Las Vegas, Nevada, school graduation removed from a church. We celebrate the 120th birthday of composer Yip Harburg (“Over the Rainbow”). Then we hear excerpts of the “Lifetime Achievement” award acceptance speech given at FFRF’s 2015 convention by Rita Swan, founder and director of C.H.I.L.D (Children’s Healthcare Is a Legal Duty) talking about the danger to children of state laws exempting parents from providing healthcare to their children on religious grounds.
