I was recently (Nov 30) able to appear on FoxNews’ "Hannity & Colmes" program to support church-state separation and represent our CFI campus affiliate group—Gator Freethought. The program focused on a 10 Commandments monument recently placed on the courthouse steps in Dixie County, FL. The short segment was abbreviated further by a satellite disruption, but anyone interested can watch a YouTube clip of the show, read my commentary, and follow updates, at the Gator Freethought webpage.
Of course, part of me just wanted to point that out for egotistical reasons, including spotlighting our group at UF. However, I mention this also because we have been trying to locate plaintiffs to have this monument challenged. In order to reverse this erosion of our civil liberties, we need someone who either lives in Dixie County, or does significant business at the courthouse there, to establish legal standing to file a suit.
