The Resurgence of the Religious Right: Extremism And Public Policy

*PLEASE NOTE LATER THAN USUAL START TIME*

Eddie Tabash of the Center for Inquiry will present a discussion of the rise of the religious right and the impact on public policy.

Note change in start time to 11:00 AM.

This presentation will describe how the election has brought the religious right back to full power and how religious fundamentalists seek to infuse religious doctrines into laws that are supposed to govern a pluralistic society. Eddie Tabash is a constitutional lawyer in the Los Angeles area. He chairs the board of directors of the Center for Inquiry. His father was an orthodox rabbi from Lithuania. His mother was an Auschwitz survivor from Hungary. After decades of personal religious and spiritual reflection and seeking, he became an atheist. However, in his legal work, Eddie Tabash is devoted to securing full equality for everyone, regardless of viewpoint on matters of religion. He also works closely with believers and nonbelievers of all types in his role as chair of the legal committee of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
