A complaint I hear often in debates about church and state is about people who challenge violations who hide their identity. People who oppose separation of church and state think that people who sue should be known publicly as if not knowing their identity makes their case not valid. I respect people who challenge violations of church and state and use their real names, but as a case in South Carolina shows, it’s something you have to be prepared to do with eyes wide open. Some Christians really really don’t like challenges to their privilege especially if the complaint comes from atheists.

In Chesterfield County, South Carolina, Jordan Anderson and his family challenged the systematic proselytizing in his middle school. They won the case but the family was harassed for challenging the Christian privilege in their community.

While checking out the Sunday “papers” I came across some stories about church and state. Including the Vatican’s dirty secret and it isn’t The Da Vinci Code, The judge in the Dover PA court case talks about the founders true intent with religion and the state, a new book is coming out focusing on the Christian rights attempt for extra special unconstitutional treatment from our government, an Iranian dissident talks about how good we have it in the states by having separation of church and state, and a story about another poor use of tax money for an abstinence-only sex education program in South Carolina.
