Religious Freedom?

I strongly believe your self-founded organization is misnamed!  You obviously don’t stand for religious freedom or you wouldn’t show such hate towards those who exercise their rights of worship and belief.  This country was founded on that right!

You misunderstand. Our objection is not to your rights of worship and belief, or anyone else’s for that matter. Our objection is to the improper mixing of religion and government. The U.S. Government, in all its manifestations, is not to promote, promulgate or show preference for one belief system over all others.That’s the way we ensure freedom of choice in belief to everyone.
 
It’s really very simple. The country’s Founders wanted to be sure everyone had the right to believe or not believe, as they chose. The way they determined to do that was to establish what is known in law as the separation of church and state. The MRFF is dedicated to protecting that separation in order to protect the rights of all. When one inserts a Bible or a religious blessing into any action by the government it, by definition, crosses a line that the Founders drew.
 
I hope this helps you better understand.
