An American atheist group delivered a letter to a U.S. congressman to request that he stop posting scripture to his official social media accounts, arguing that his actions are in violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation sent Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) a letter postmarked on August 14, asking him to “refrain from posting messages that proselytize or endorse religion on your official government social media accounts.”
“When a government official uses his elected office, including governmental platforms such as an official Facebook page, to promote his personal religious beliefs, he violates the spirit of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution,” a portion of the letter reads.
