Rob Boston: Religious Freedom: What it is and What it is Not - AHA Con 2014

American Humanist Association - Wed, 06/25/2014 - 10:56

But lately, religious conservatives have been working to redefine religious freedom as a right to ignore secular laws and discriminate against others. This talk explains why this is wrong and must be resisted. Robert Boston is an author, the director of communications of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the editor of Church and State magazine. Boston also serves on the board of directors of the AHA.
