Why Hillary and Donald, Democrat and Republican, Should Support Eliminating Massive Taxpayer Subsidizes for Religion

Featured in:

Tax subsidized damage the economy, violate the Constitution and grant to religions an outside role in public life.

When people donate to religious groups, it's tax-deductible. Churches don't pay property taxes on their land or buildings. When they buy stuff, they don't pay sales taxes. When they sell stuff at a profit, they don't pay capital gains tax.

FOR REAL WELLNESS, LIBERTY IS THE SEED AND SOIL, THE AIR AND LIGHT, THE DEW AND RAIN OF PROGRESS, LOVE AND JOY

Featured in:

In the era of a Donald Trump, liberty seems more importnat than ever, even to the point of being a health issue.

"Liberty is a word hated by kings, loathed by popes. It is a word that shatters thrones and altars, leaves the crown without subjects and the outstretched hand of superstition without alms.Liberty is the blossom and fruit of justice.

Introduction

In the coming year, freethought societies in every city, town and hamlet in the U.S. will invite their local library officials to sponsor a talk about Robert Green Ingersoll.

What follows is how my own local library billed the basic speech.
