Your Voice Is Needed To Prevent Right Wing Hate and Discrimination
Please don’t give in to the hate and fear being spread by the Conservative Right who wish to divide us and keep us weak as a people. This country was founded on principles of freedoms and democracy for all, not just for some. Please support freedom of religion and the separation of Church and State. Our nation is made of peoples of all faiths, creeds, and national origins. Help us celebrate our diversity for it gives us strength.
Right-wing politicians are using the proposed Islamic community center near Ground Zero to whip up fear and hate. But as President Obama said: “This is America. Our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.”
Last week, President Obama took a brave stand in support of our core American principle of freedom of religion.
Now, President Obama is under serious attack from Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin and much of the Republican Party/Conservative Christian right, who are using the proposed Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan to whip up fear and hate. We all need to speak out and stand with the President in defense of basic American values.
I just signed a statement supporting President Obama. Watch the video of the president’s statement and join me at the link below.
