Video: AU’s Barry Lynn vs ACLJ’s Jay Sekulow, 3/26/2014, Philadelphia PA. “Church/State Separation in the 21st Century.”
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 was 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.
The conversation was moderated by Hugh Taft-Morales, Leader of the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia, featuring Reverend Barry Lynn, Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AU), and Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). AU and the ACLJ often find themselves on opposite sides of the courtroom on church-state separation cases. Join us on March 26 at 6pm to see this important “casual debate” and ask your own questions. There were three topics for conversation: Greece vs Galloway, Americans United’s legislative prayer case currently under review by the US Supreme Court; the requirement for religious institutions to include contraception coverage in health insurance; and the problem of engaging in politics in the pulpit.
