AU Urges Alito's Rejection

Americans United for Separation of Church and State has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to reject Samuel Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court on the grounds that his record suggests he lacks respect for church-state separation. Here's a quote from Executive Director Barry Lynn:

"Judge Alito has given broad license to religious majorities to use the public schools and other official settings to broadcast their religious messages without regard for the competing rights and interests of religious minorities," Lynn argued.
