The following is an invitation from our friends at Separation of Church & State Meetup:
A Very Special Event -- Barry Lynn, AU Executive Director speaking in Portland!
The presentation is entitled:
“Three 800 Pound Gorillas Enter the Church-State Arena And It's No Joke”
Barry Lynn’s talk will emphasize three major church/state issues that are popping up around the country: illegal political activity by churches, government funding for religious groups with discriminatory hiring practices, and for-profit businesses with owners claiming religious objection to covering birth control for their employees.
What might be surprising is that the Obama administration is doing very little to preserve church/state separation in two of these areas and is waffling on the third.
Perhaps the most effective voice for church/state separation today, Barry Lynn frequently appears on national TV news programs. He is a lively speaker who is always up-to-date on the latest issues.

This event is presented by the Columbia Chapter of AU and by the Portland Church-State Meetup. It is FREE and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30.
Please come and bring a friend.
