Jamila Bey here.  I could really use your help to get the word out about a project I'm working on. I'm fundraising to create a journalism forum online and as an iTunes podcast where news about the issues that are important to us can find a home.
 
My show, the Sex, Politics and Religion Hour, or SPAR, will focus on the beating that the First Amendment seems to be taking at this point. I will produce 30 half-hour long shows in take on all topics separation of State and Church, ind addition to reporting on First Amendment freedom, politics, and science policy issues. It'll be a forum for discussion and insight, and actual reporting and investigation.
 

I'll be bringing independent polling and on the ground reporting from here in DC and around the country with a team of correspondents and contributors.  From Congress, the Supreme Court and the White House, to local school boards and state legislatures, this site will be considering news from the point of view that religion shouldn't get a free pass from scrutiny and fair criticism when looking at its involvement in larger American life!

With your help, (and the help of the people that are a part of your network), I’ll produce stories that will deeply examine the news and news makers to help Americans better understand that the First Amendment can only survive if it’s allowed to stand in the sunshine. 

And everyone who contributes $100 or more gets an autographed copy of my upcoming book on the role that religion plays in the lives of African American women.

I'd really love to have your support!

Too bad this didn't work...

It would almost require an act of god to accomplish your objective.

I doubt that many of us have a handle on first amendment issues beyond superficial and misleading stuff...
