H.R. 2679

With little public attention or even notice, the House of Representatives has passed a bill that undermines enforcement of the First Amendment's separation of church and state. The Public Expression of Religion Act - H.R. 2679 - provides that attorneys who successfully challenge government actions as violating the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment shall not be entitled to recover attorneys fees. The bill has only one purpose: to prevent suits challenging unconstitutional government actions advancing religion.

That should tell you everything you need to know.

So, challenging govt.-led advancement of religion (read: Christianity) in the public sphere is "extorting" money from states? I'll bet the author of this bill had the ACLU in mind when he/she wrote this.
