Secular Purpose

On January 2nd, a judge ruled that the secular purpose of the moment of silence law is not a sham. We disagree and have asked our attorney Dean Cook to file an appeal.

I have uploaded the ruling to my Moment of Silence webpage along with links to recent news articles about the decision. I have also added a transcript of the oral arguments in which Mr. Cook summarized with this memorable quote:

[...] while the free exercise clause clearly prohibits the use of state action to deny the right of free exercise to anyone, it has never meant that a majority could use the machinery of the state to practice its beliefs.
