Religion has been an unavoidable issue in politics in recent years and has only grown in the last few months as the Presidential Election closes in. What, if any, importance should be placed on Romney’s Mormonism?    Why did Democrats leave God out of their Platform? Why did they put Him back in?  What should we make of growing claims to persecution of Christians in the US? The wall of Separation of Church and State is seeming to grow thin. Is there anything secular and non-theistic Americans can do to strengthen it?  To make sure they are represented?

What role can, or even should, secular activists play?
