Our speaker for November is Rob Boston, Assistant Director, Americans United, “The Religious Right’s War on America”Religious Right groups claim to be patriots who love the United States. But many of their policies fly in the face of traditional American values like separation of church and state, tolerance, diversity, free inquiry and the right to dissent. In this talk, Rob Boston, senior policy analyst for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, will discuss his experiences over nearly 25 years tracking Religious Right groups (including attending Religious Right conferences) and will explain why the theocrats’ vision for America is wrong and must be rejected. Rob is the author of three books: “Close Encounters with the Religious Right: Journeys into the Twilight Zone of Religion and Politics” (Prometheus Books, 2000); “The Most Dangerous Man in America? Pat Robertson and the Rise of the Christian Coalition” (Prometheus Books, 1996) and “Why the Religious Right Is Wrong About Separation of Church and State” (Prometheus Books, 1993; second edition, 2003).
