    I Testified Against “In God We Trust” in Alabama. Then Came the Death Threats.

    On June 19, 2014, I coordinated the delivery of public testimony before the Mobile, Alabama, County Commission against a resolution to display a plaque with the motto “In God We Trust” in Mobile Government Plaza.

    Rules Are for Schmucks: Did the Dog Eat the IRS’s Homework?

    The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) recently announced a settlement in which the IRS agreed to re-initiate enforcement of a federal law that has been on the books for sixty years, and enforced by every administration prior to this one.

Susan Schneider: Cognitive science is increasingly showing that the […]

    A Message for Kids: Without a Gun, You’re Helpless

    While the U.S. Constitution guarantees Americans the right to own guns, there are extremists who take that right too far. Take the parents who allowed their nine-year-old daughter to fire an Uzi at the Bullets and Burgers shooting range in Las Vegas, Nevada, earlier this week, and then saw her lose control of it and […]
