Jewish Dems Alarmed by NC State Religion Bill

National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) Executive Director Aaron Keyak issued the following statement in response to the bill that would permit the establishment of a state religion in North Carolina:

“The bill proposed in North Carolina that would assert that states are not be bound by the separation of church and state is very alarming to those of us who understand the utmost importance of this constitutional value, including American Jews. If this bill is seriously considered or becomes law, it will have consequences for all Americans and those who believe that government should not be making laws that show preference to some religions over others. We call for this bill to be completely rejected in North Carolina and withdrawn from consideration.”
