Macklemore is One of the Voices United for the Separation of Church and State
By Tim Peacock
As a part of Americans United‘s ongoing effort to promote the separation of church and state, billboard chart-topping artist Macklemore made a video explaining why he is one of the Voices United for Separation of Church and State. He’s one of several artists and musicians who have volunteered their time and image to the cause. According to the project’s mission, “September 2013, singers, musicians and comedians will harmonize in a nationwide weekend of events to celebrate — and defend — the vital principle of church-state separation.”
You can be one of the Voices United for Separation of Church and State – it is easy!
We are looking for a short video (speaking into your camera phone is great!) of you telling the world about why you support church-state separation. Have you ever felt like a second-class citizen due to your beliefs or lack of belief? Are you horrified by the influence the Catholic hierarchy and Religious Right are wielding in the healthcare debate? Are you furious at the multiple proposals by Congress to fund religion and deny civil rights to citizens? To tie the project together, we ask that you end your video with the words, “this is why I am one of the voices united for separation of church and state.” Videos should be posted to YouTube and links should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and may be posted on our website and featured on Facebook and Twitter.
