James C. Corman: Friend Of Freedom.

The cause of church-state separation lost a great friend Dec. 30 when former U.S. Rep. James C. Corman died in Arlington, Va.

Corman, a 10-term member of Congress from California, was a stalwart advocate of civil rights and civil liberties. He was especially vigilant in defense of the religious liberty provisions of the Constitution. During his service in the House, he spoke out forcefully against government-mandated prayer in public schools, as well as other violations of the First Amendment.

Corman, a United Methodist, also served on the board of trustees of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, including a four-year term as president (1985-1989).

His contribution to Americans United and the cause we share will be greatly missed.
