… The Rhode Island State Council of Churches will hold a news conference in support of Jessica Ahlquist, the 16-year-old atheist who challenged the Cranston prayer banner, on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m.
The news conference “in favor of tolerance and civility” will include faith leaders in Cranston and throughout Rhode Island speaking out to support Ahlquist’s right to challenge the prayer banner.
The press conference will also condemn the treatment and inappropriate language and words use to describe Ahlquist.
We usually don’t see many moderate Christians speaking up when it comes to issues like church/state separation, so this is a very welcome gesture.
The event will take place at the Edgewood Congregational Church in Cranston tomorrow.
Feel free to show some love on the group’s Facebook page.
