Secular Coalition Rates Congress Members' Voting Records

Yesterday, the Secular Coalition for America released its ratings of members of the 109th Congress based on their records on ten key votes in each house. Seven members of the House and 18 Senators earned a perfect score for their support for separation of church and state and protection of minority rights. SCA Director Lori Lipman Brown said: "With the political strength of the religious right and the irrational demonizing of the nontheist community, I am very proud of these members of Congress." The Scorecard for every House and Senate member is available at SCA's website.
