constitution-674750707-589d3d975f9b58819cd07964With speaker Jonathan Engel on “Separation of Church & State Isn’t in the Constitution” … and Other American Myths A nationally-recognized First Amendment authority, Jon’s 2013 Freethought Day presentation for us, “The History of Church/State Separation in America”, was an insightful and witty knockout.

Now, here’s a peek into his current thinking:
I’m concentrating on what I consider to be three current myths about separation: that it “isn’t in the constitution”, that “the 10 Commandments are the basis for our laws”, and that “while government can’t favor any one religion over another, it can favor religion over non-religion”.
