Americans United for Separation of Church and State is a nonpartisan educational organization dedicated to preserving the constitutional principle of church-state separation as the only way to ensure religious freedom for all Americans. The Orange County Chapter holds monthly meetings bringing timely information on local and national issues.
Is the issue of separation of church and state important to you? Are you looking for like minded people who will protect our First Amendment Rights? Are you looking for ways to counter the Religious Right's assault on our secular government? If your answer is yes, please join us (http://bit.ly/AUSCSOCCA)!
Regarding our location: The Irvine Ranch Water District neither supports nor endorses the cause nor activities of organizations which use the District’s meeting rooms that are made available as a public service.
Dr. Jones will discuss how the Religious Right has resurrected their old tactic of rationalizing their discrimination against groups of people whom they frown upon and in so doing distort the meaning of religious freedom to legalize their bigotry.
