(Palm Beach Post) Liz Murad, once a Franciscan nun, says she no longer believes in God but does believe in the U.S. Constitution. And she worries that attempts to change Florida laws will violate the U.S. political principle that separates church from state.

Murad,73, of Fort Pierce, belongs to Humanists of the Treasure Coast, an organization of nonbelievers that opposes Amendment 8 to the Florida constitution, which will be on the ballot in November.

Proponents of the amendment say it simply protects the equal rights of people who profess belief in God. But Murad strongly disagrees, saying she is particularly concerned about tax money going to religious institutions.
