Pagans, better than anyone else, understand the power of symbols.

And statues in particular.

It's bad enough that, as you read this, the body of “evangelist” Billy Graham lies in state in the US Capitol rotunda.

Now there's a plan to memorialize him there permanently with a statue.

Graham never held public office. He simply does not deserve to be memorialized in a building dedicated to the preservation of a wall of separation between church and state.

That his body was exhibited at the US Capitol was a slap in the face of every non-Christian in America.

For his statue to stand there would be a knife in every non-Christian heart in the country.

You know very well that, once such a statue was in place, not a single legislator would ever have the courage to remove it.

If you pray, please pray to prevent this.

If you do spellwork, please work against it.

If you write to legislators, please write to them.

We are the pagans. We are the Free people.

We're Free because we fight for it.



Dear Senator/Representative,

Billy Graham never held elected public office. He was a Christian missionary, pure and simple.

That his body should lie in state at the US Capitol, a building dedicated to the separation of church and state, was disgraceful.

But that a statue of this religious imperialist should stand there in perpetuity is unthinkable.

Senator/representative, you must work to prevent this from happening.

Most of your colleagues, quite frankly, don't have the courage to do so.

Yours most sincerely,

Your Name Here
