  • May Memorial Unitarian Universalist Society 3800 East Genesee Street Syracuse, NY, 13214 United States

Should all religious symbols and language be barred from
public spaces? Where do you draw the line between church and state?

Tom Flynn (executive director of the Council for Secular Humanism) offers a personal argument on 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.
