“Is Doubt Bad?”
Sunday, October 17, 2014
What's Religion Got to do with it?
“What do religion and politics have to do with each other?" That has been a pressing question since the formation of our nation. While many Americans rely on our ‘separation of church and state doctrine, sometimes religious people wish a closer connection, such as when Protestant groups promoted and achieved Prohibition.
In two sessions, we will examine a brief history of the relationship between church and state, the politics that have gotten implicated, the sharp polarization that is resulting, and how the increasing secularization of the U.S. may affect all Americans, religious or not. Please join us as we tackle these issues that are so vital to the unity and societal health of our nation.

What do they believe? And what might this mean for the U.S.?
