April 23rd Sunday Assembly

Sunday Assembly with Rob BostonDirector of Communications at Americans United for Separation of Church and State

What Do You People Want?:A Positive Vision of Secularism

Advocates of separation of church and state (especially those in the non-belief community) are often challenged by followers of the Religious Right to explain what they want or what aspect of U.S. society they would change in both legal and cultural contexts. In this talk, Rob Boston of Americans United will discuss the ideal secular society that many supporters of church-state separation are working toward. The speech will cover topics such as government endorsement of religion, the role of religion in public education, LGBT rights, taxpayer support for religious projects and how to define religious freedom claims in a multi-faith, multi-philosophy society. It will also include information about the challenges we face under the Trump administration.
