Rob Boston - Separation of Church and State: Where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’d like to be @ Franklin Township Library (Community Room)

We will host guest speaker Rob Boston, Senior Adviser at Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and Editor of Church & State Magazine.

Rob has worked at AU since 1987 and is the author of four books: Close Encounters with the Religious Right: Journeys into the Twilight Zone of Religion and Politics (Prometheus Books, 2000); The Most Dangerous Man in America? Pat Robertson and the Rise of the Christian Coalition (Prometheus Books, 1996); Why the Religious Right Is Wrong About Separation of Church and State (Prometheus Books, 1993; second edition, 2003) and, most recently, Taking Liberties: Why Religious Freedom Doesn’t Give You The Right To Tell Other People What To Do (Prometheus Books, 2014).

Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AU) is a national nonpartisan educational and advocacy organization dedicated to advancing the constitutional principle of church-state separation as the only way to ensure freedom of religion, including the right to believe or not believe, for all Americans. AU envisions an America where everyone can freely choose a faith and support it voluntarily, or follow no religious or spiritual path at all, and where the government does not promote religion over non-religion or favor one faith over another.

*This event will be held on a Saturday.*

A Q&A session will follow the talk.

You can find Americans United on Facebook and Twitter.

Free and open to the public. Refreshments provided. After the meeting, everyone is welcome to join us for an early dinner at 4:00 pm at Luigi’s Pizza & Grill Restaurant, 305 Elizabeth Ave, Somerset. Seating limited to 20, contact us by email to RSVP.
