Action Alert - Dec 11, 2012

There are 4 comments on the action.americanhumanist.org story from Dec 11, 2012, titled Action Alert - Dec 11, 2012. In it, action.americanhumanist.org reports that:

Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) who you may remember from his infamous claim that "We can't set up free societies around the world because they don't have the moral underpinnings that come from Biblical faith" is retiring from Congress.

Nikki Haley, South Carolina's governor, has the responsibility of appointing a senator to represent South Carolina for the rest of DeMint's term. His departure gives South Carolina the chance to make up for all the unscientific and fundamentalist positions he took while in office.

Americans and South Carolinians need more than religious demagogues in Congress. We deserve someone who stands up for science and equality, and Herb Silverman is just that person.

Herb isn't new to running for office. In 1990, he ran for governor of South Carolina to challenge the state's constitutional provision that prohibited atheists from holding public office, a story he recounts in his book "Candidate Without A Prayer".(" http://www.americanhumanist.org/news/details/... ;)

So take a moment to pass along a message to Governor Haley asking her to appoint Herb to represent South Carolina in the United States Senate.
