Tom Flynn Presents a "Radical" Vision of Church-State Separation at the University of Rochester Nov. 6

Tom FlynnTom Flynn, executive director of the Council for Secular Humanism and editor of the magazine Free Inquiry comes to the University of Rochester to deliver a talk on his vision of what the future might hold for secularism with his lecture, “A Radical Take on Church-State Separation,” presented free of charge by the Atheist Community of Rochester, SSA at the University Of Rochester, and the Council of Secular Humanism on November 6 at 7:00pm.

Think way, way beyond what current law allows – what kind of long-term future should American secularists strive for? A future defined by faith-based initiatives, or a naked public square? One where religious expression resounds through public institutions and public spaces, or where thoughtful people confine such things to the private realm? Tom Flynn offers a personal argument why secularists should dream big and strive for a tomorrow in which public spaces truly are “religion-free zones.”

Agree or disagree, you won’t want to miss this engaging and provocative presentation.
