Freedom From Religion Foundation

Republican Rep. Scott Allen of Waukesha used state equipment to produce and post a Christmas video that cites Bible verses and invites non-believers to become Christians, according to Assembly Speaker Robin Vos.

In the video, Allen says, "For those who may watch this and are not Christians, I invite you to consider the hope offered by the Prince of Peace."

Anne Nicol Gaylor was 88 years old, when she died late Sunday at a hospice in Fitchburg, Wisconsin. Gaylor propelled the creation of the Freedom From Religion Foundation in 1976 and served as its president until 2004. It went national in 1978 and claims 23,000 members today. The organization has continuously launched legal actions to keep religion and government separate and prevailed, for instance, at having Wisconsin's Good Friday holiday declared unconstitutional.

Gaylor also fought for abortion rights and helped start programs to benefit indigent women.

Gov. Walker's Facebook and Twitter accounts posted "Philippians 4:13"  on Sunday, an apparent reference to a Bible passage.
