Our Non-Christian Nation: How Atheists, Satanists, Wiccans and Others are Demanding their Place in American Public Life
Professor Jay Wexler
In the past two decades, the Supreme Court has largely torn down the wall separating church and state, allowing Christians to display monuments on public property, apply for public funds, and pray before town meetings. At the same time, though, the United States has become more religiously diverse, with a particular increase in the number of people who identify as having no religion. In this talk, Wexler describes how religious minorities, including atheists, have been demanding to take part in public life alongside Christians and argues that this is a trend that should be celebrated and continued.
