Maine Chapter Freedom from Religion Mission Statement

The Maine Chapter of the Freedom from Religion Foundation works to defend the First Amendment’s freedom from religion.

We help raise awareness that everyone’s civil rights are threatened when laws favor one religion, or religion over non-belief by – Participating in the Portland Pride Parade, having a booth at the Common Ground Fair, giving talks in Maine, and delivering a secular invocation to the Maine Senate and House.

The Maine Chapter is an open and welcoming community. We invite all people who support the separation of church and state regardless of religious faith, secular principles, nationality, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, age or ability.

Remember, no one can do everything but everyone can do something. Together we can make a difference.


Keep  on  Thinking  Free

(Person) I think, I think I am, therefore I am, I think.

(Administration) Of course you are my bright little star

We have collected miles and miles of files on you

Now to suit our great computer, you’re magnetic ink

(Person) I’m more than that; I know I am, at least, I think I must be

(Inner Voice) There you go, keep as cool as you can

Face piles of trials with smiles

It riles the Administration to know you perceive the web they weave

Keep on Thinking Free
