Religion is a major cause of the spread of COVID. The NO BAN Act passed the U.S. House this week, undoing President Trump’s restrictions on travel and immigration from several Muslim countries. FFRF Staff Attorney Patrick Elliott tells us about a church-owned property that will now have to pay taxes. We protest an evangelical-owned coffeeshop for violating mask regulations and condemn the South Carolina governor for diverting tax money to religious schools. Then we talk with U.S. Representative Jared Huffman — the only open nonbeliever in Congress — about the Congressional Freethought Caucus' scathing rebuke of the report by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s Commission on Unalienable Rights.
