Religious Liberty and LGBT Rights

On Monday, June 10, from 6-7pm eastern, Becky Garrison will host a webinar about religious liberty with a focus on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) issues, a conversation important to both people of faith and nontheists. I will be joining Becky on this webinar, along and Ed Buckner, former President of American Atheists and author of In Freedom We Trust, and other invited guests.

Relatedly, June 10th happens to be the 216th anniversary of the proclamation of the famous Treaty with Tripoli that clarifies what the Founding Fathers thought about the merger of church and state. And this year marks the 350th anniversary of the signing of the RI state charter, which has the distinction of being the first governmental charter to write religious liberty into law.

This event is free but reservations are required. To RSVP go to this link.
