Moving Secularism Forward: Council for Secular Humanism Conference 2012 | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Florida will host one of 2012’s most dramatic church-state battles. In response to a Council for Secular Humanism lawsuit, a measure on Florida’s November 2012 ballot would amend the state constitution to jettison language that forbids state funding of religious institutions.
