On July 18 the chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives gave an invocation and asked god to cast out the dark spirits from the House of Representatives.  We should be free from this nonsense as a matter of personal rights to be free from religion.  Secondly, we are guaranteed a separation of state and church.  While we may have tolerated a moment of silence, reflection, or even simple prayer as a matter of tradition this type of over the top superstition can not be allowed and demonstrates why the promise of separation and the right of individual freedom from religion must trump tradition.  This petitions seeks to assert our rights, have the chaplain removed, end prayer in all branches of government and provide a clear and complete separation of church and state.
