Texans are a varied people, with citizens of many belief systems or no belief system. Any state endorsement of religion or a religious group, even without intent, uses public resources to put that group in a privileged position and relegates the people of other religious groups, or the non-religious, to a lower class. We hold that all religious matters should be kept out of Texas government, which should instead be run on evidence-based and reason-driven decision making.
Religious Special Privilege
Secular Texas is a strong supporter of the rights of individuals to freedom of conscience and freedom of worship. However, when these basic freedoms are used as an excuse to infringe on the right to equal treatment of other citizens, under the law or in the marketplace, we recommend caution, empathy and an attention to nuance to guarantee the maximum rights of Texans.
