NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — A national atheist lobbying group is preparing to open a state chapter in Tennessee.

The Secular Coalition for America announced its intention earlier this week to organize a Tennessee chapter aimed at lobbying state lawmakers on issues involving the separation of church and state.

Edwina Rogers, the executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based coalition, says there’s been a lot of interest from Tennesseans in organizing a state chapter.
