Steve Deace: Congressional Freethought Caucus Members Want to “Kill God”

May 3, 2018

By Hemant Mehta

Last week, Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA) announced the formation of a Congressional Freethought Caucus.

Since that announcement, we’ve learned a few more details. Huffman and Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) will co-chair the caucus. Other members include Rep. Jerry McNerney(D-CA), Rep. Dan Kildee (D-MI), and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), who announced her membership on Twitter.

What will the caucus do? We already know their goals:

1) to promote public policy formed on the basis of reason, science, and moral values;

2) to protect the secular character of our government by adhering to the strict Constitutional principle of the separation of church and state;

3) to oppose discrimination against atheists, agnostics, humanists, seekers, religious and nonreligious persons, and to champion the value of freedom of thought and conscience worldwide; and

4) to provide a forum for members of Congress to discuss their moral frameworks, ethical values, and personal religious journeys.

To be clear, you don’t even have to be non-religious to join this caucus. As long as you support church/state separation and evidence-based policymaking, you’re pretty much good to go!

  • @OP – 1) to promote public policy formed on the basis of reason, science, and moral values;

    To the irrational, evidence based reasoning is an attack on their thinking.

    To the fundamentalist Biblical literalist , science is a threat to their world-view!

    To the god-deluded bigot! Secular humanist morality, is a threat to the imagined diktats of their absolutist god-delusion!

    To the faith-based uneducated stupid, the combination of reason, science, and morality based on human altruism, is an attack on their egotistical self-centred doctrinaire stupidity!

    To the “ignorant and proud”, informed debate is a threat to their feelings of superiority!

    . . . . and to Trumpy parrots, contemporary records of events, are an attack on Trump’s lies and “alternative facts”!

    Those “poor obsessive little martyrs”, are under attack from all sides! 🙂
