Is this just a job for the PA Freepers, or since it's really a Constitutional matter, can the rest of us contact our state's congressmen? How does one go about fighting this unless a resident of that state?

Since it's a state bill any effective protests against it must come from inside the state. That's a job for PA Freepers "at the moment."

It's also a constitutional matter that will spread to the other states if it's not stopped in PA, so that makes it a job for all Freepers.

One way of fighting this infringement is for the PA Freepers to take the lead in campaigning against it to both their State Legislature and State Executive. Freepers in the rest of the states fight a "preemption" battle at their state legislature and executive levels to head off any such bill coming to their state.

Whether the bill stays as it is in PA or is withdrawn the rest of the States Legislatures, Judiciaries, and Executive branches will have been put on notice that they cannot infringe on religious freedoms without a fight that will cost them dearly at the voting booth.

All that's needed is for Freepers to organize, and make waves. If you can get them to do that the hardest part is over.

Do you know if legally just one person can file a complaint against the state that a bill is unconstitutional? I don't see where we should have to have 100's of people to make a case - just like in law, all it should take is one person filing a motion, and the point is made....do you know law?

How about alerting Jay Seculo and the American Center for Law and Justice? I think I'll do that, but we shouldn't give up on our Constitutional rights as Freepers. Gee, everybody's so quick to say they'll fight when the Constitution will be taken away ....WAKE UP PEOPLE, IT'S TODAY, AND IN THIS CASE IT WAS 12/02 YESTERDAY. Let's put our action where our mouth is.

I'm not getting any response from many if any Freepers. ("Who cares until they come to MY state?" - that's a heck of an attitude for an American) No matter, I'll let you know what Jay Seculo says.
