American Crusade: How the Supreme Court Is Weaponizing Religious Freedom
October 18, 2022
The Secular Humanists of Western Lake Erie (SHoWLE) will be presenting a video of a recent Secular Student Alliance webinar by critically acclaimed author and constitutional attorney Andrew L. Seidel concerning recent US Supreme Court decisions that put the religious freedom of all of us in danger.
Seidel’s latest book “American Crusade: How the Supreme Court Is Weaponizing Religious Freedom” looks at some of the key Supreme Court cases over the last decade to show how a hallowed legal protection, freedom of religion, has been turned into a tool to advance privilege and impose conservative Christianity on others. This was one of his first book talks. Seidel, who works at Americans United for Separation of Church and State, has been in this fight for more than a decade.
Following the video there will be a discussion of the issue as well as looking at some local church and state issues like the recent lawsuit over busing in Sylvania.
