The Establishment Clause is the first item in the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The freedom from state-sponsored religion is the first right granted in the Bill of Rights. But pride of place doesn’t mean that this right is simple to maintain. No right is.
Any group that doesn’t speak up for its rights will lose them. Lori Lipman Brown will talk to us about how the Secular Coalition for America lobbies “to protect the rights of atheists, humanists, agnostics, freethinkers and other nontheistic Americans.” Lori will be interviewed by Steve Petersen, board chair for Minnesota Atheists.For more information on the show and for related links, visit the Atheists Talk website.
