MILITANT ATHEISM: LEGAL SUCCESSES AND LOSSES

      Militant Atheists are determined, focused and well funded. Most battles they have engaged America in have been won. This has emboldened and energized them. Their successes will continue, unless believers join forces to stop their unrelenting attacks.


ONE ATHEIST WOMAN TRANSFORMED AMERICA 

    The most momentous first achievement by militant atheists has been the removal of Bible readings and prayer recitations from American public schools. The litigant was Madalyn O'Hair, founder of  the "American Atheists" organization.


                                 "FREEDOM FROM RELIGION FOUNDATION"

The FFRF is unrelenting in its mission to free America of Religion. They consistently manipulate the Constitution as their weapon of choice. As their web site promulgates, they have been brutally successful and have no intention of stopping their obsessive pursuit.

MAJOR SUCCESSES

  • Winning the first federal lawsuit challenging direct funding by the government of a faith-based agency
  • Overturning a state Good Friday holiday
  • Winning a lawsuit barring direct taxpayer subsidy of religious schools
  • Removing Ten Commandments monuments and crosses from public land
  • Halting the Post Office from issuing religious cancellations
  • Ending 51 years of legal bible instruction in public schools

Foundation complaints have:

  • Halted prayer at public institutions, and public financing of nativity pageants and Easter service
  • Stopped direct subsidy to religious schools
  • Stopped Job Corps trainees from being assigned to work on a Catholic shrine
  • Ended a 122-year abuse of commencement prayers at a Top Ten University
  • Declared unconstitutional the creation of a state post to "assist clergy"
