U.S. House Members Ask President Obama to Heed Coalition Against Religious Discrimination
Five members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed on to a letter in support of the Coalition Against Religious Discrimination (CARD), of which the Secular Coalition for America is a member, and its request that the Obama administration address the problem of religious discrimination in hiring practices by houses of worship receiving your tax dollars under the so-called "Faith-Based Initiatives" program.
The letter expresses concern that the issue of religious discrimination "is still not being dealt with in a comprehensive manner," and endorses the original February 4 letter sent by CARD. Congressional signatories were Reps. Chet Edwards (TX), Barney Frank (MA), Chris Van Hollen (MD), Jerrold Nadler (NY), and Robert C. "Bobby" Scott (VA).
