I have not checked my email for a while. I want to make sure that I understand this Texas Freedom Network. Is Texas Freedom Network a supporting religions in school organization? They want to put religions in schools? Is this what it is?



From their "About" page, it appears their intent is to support separation of church and state without being anti-religious.

"The right to worship as one chooses free from government interference is the foundation of a diverse and democratic society, protecting the rights of all people of faith. Policies like government-mandated school prayer and public funding for religious schools threaten religious freedom."

"The Texas Freedom Network affirms the right of every child to pray voluntarily in public school and the right of students to practice their own faith, free from government-sponsored prayer."
