Legislative Scorecard On Issues Important To Non-Theists Released

The Center for Freethought Equality last week released its scorecard for U.S. House members in the 114th Congress on seven votes of importance to secular and non-theistic Americans. In releasing the scorecard, CFE said in part:
Representatives were scored based on their voting records on legislation that either bolstered or weakened the separation of church and state. The scorecard included legislators’ co-sponsorship for the Darwin Day Resolution (H.Res. 548), which would recognize February 12 as a celebration of the accomplishments of naturalist Charles Darwin while opposing the teaching of creationism and intelligent design in public schools....
Of all the legislators ranked, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) and Rep. Mike Honda (CA-17) had the highest scores.
