Maine Chapter Freedom from Religion Mission Statement

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

The administration violates First Amendment freedoms when they make illegal decisions that put fundamentalist Christian beliefs above the law. Doing so takes away the rights of those who follow another faith tradition or who follow no religion.

We engage the public to help raise awareness that everyone’s human rights are threatened when laws are made that favor one religion over all others or over non-belief by – Participating in the Portland Pride Parade in solidarity with the LBGT community; having an annual booth at the Common Ground Fair; and giving a secular invocation to the Maine Senate and House.

We are an open and welcoming community that offers you an opportunity to support your secular world view in a way that feels right for you. Remember, no one can do everything but everyone can do something. Together we can make a difference.

The Maine Chapter is open to 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.

Keep  on  Thinking  Free

I think, I think I am, therefore I am, I think.

There you go man, keep as cool as you can. Face piles of trials with smiles.
It riles the administration to believe you perceive the web they weave.

Keep on Thinking Free
