The Delaware Valley Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, DVAU, is proud to co-host a special event with The Penn Program on Democracy, Citizenship, and Constitutionalism“A Conversation with Barry Lynn and Jay Sekulow: Church/State Separation in the 21st Century.”

This special event will be held from 6:00pm to 8:00pm on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, in the Hall of Flags, Houston Hall Ground Floor (Basement), 3417 Spruce Street. Parking info below.

    I enjoyed the event. Although the legalese & lawyer lingo was a little tricky to follow at times, I thought the respect these men have for each other & their wisdom made it a worthwhile experience!

    Is it okay for public meetings to be opened with prayers? Should religious institutions be required to cover contraceptives in health insurance? Can a church pastor talk about politics from the pulpit? These questions and more will be the topics of a March 26 debate between Barry Lynn, Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church & State and Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice. AU and the ACLJ often find themselves on opposite sides of the courtroom on church-state separation cases.
