The FFRF constantly files lawsuits and complaints to get their way. They are taking away your religious and free speech rights little by little. The First amendment explains that you can not establish a religion or take away the free practice of it. Establishing a religion is forcing people to worship their God and forcing them to pray or put religious icons up but all we are doing is our free practice of it. This FFRF is taking away our free practice of prayer, crosses, and other religous things and trying to take over the country, before this is done shut them down. If so I have a petition. http://petitions.moveon.org...

I accept this debate. My position, since you are arguing in the affirmative, will be that you cannot provide sufficient reason that the Freedom From Religion Foundation should be shut down. I offer the following background information.

(1) The Freedom From Religion Foundation states on its website that "[t]he purposes of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Inc., as stated in its bylaws, are to promote the constitutional principle of separation of state and church, and to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism" (http://ffrf.org...?).

(2) The First Amendment to the United States Constitution states that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances" (http://constitutioncenter.org...).

Thank you, and I look forward to this debate.
