The Freethought Society is pleased to host author and attorney Andrew L. Seidel on Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 7:00 PM. The free and open-to-the-public talk will take place in the Community Meeting Room of the Ludington Library. The Library is located at 5 South Bryn Mawr Avenue, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. A SEPTA stop is conveniently located across the street from the Ludington Library.

Seidel’s speech, “The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American,” is based on his book by the same name.

Seidel is the Director of Strategic Response at the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). When not fighting for the First Amendment with FFRF, Andrew writes for Slate, ThinkProgress, Religion News Service, Rewire News and many other publications.

Renowned constitutional scholar Erwin Chemerinsky described The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American as “a beautifully written book” that “explodes a frequently expressed myth: that the United States was created as a Christian nation.”

Seidel’s book illustrates that not only is the United States not a Christian nation but Judeo-Christian principles are fundamentally opposed to the values on which America was founded. Religion, law, and history will collide in this provocative conversational-style presentation. Seidel will discuss his book and field questions.

We are not allowed to sell books inside the library. We will, however, be in the parking lot after the presentation with the back of my SUV open. Books can be purchased there and Andrew will sign books at the same location.
