The Founding of Nation, Rich in Religious Contradictions: Rick Bradford

Produced in association with The Council for Secular Humanism this fascinating four-part documentary traces the history of secularism, free speech and censorship in America.In Part 1, we’ll  meet Ethan Allen, America’s first free thought author, examine the lives and careers of Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine, including Paine’s seminal book The Age of Reason, and witness the rise of the abolition movement as radical abolitionists like Lucretia Mott and Elizur Wright break from the churches. 

Great Lectures on DVD is FREE.(But put something on the bar beside your elbow.)

    the video was interesting and well done. however,the discussion afterward
    seemed to veer off into areas not related to the subject of the video.

    Pretty good but not great history-of-freethought dvd, then an excellent conversation among interesting and intelligent people.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
