"Are Unbelievers Unelectable? Examining the Political Ramifications of Atheism"
Prejudice against atheists is pervasive in the United States. Atheists lag behind virtually all other groups on measures of social and political acceptance. This is especially evident when you consider that Congress does not include even a single openly-atheist Senator or Representative. Dr. Franks will discuss the political ramifications of atheism in the United States and factors that may improve voter support for non-religious candidates.
Our Sunday morning programs run from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and are followed by a coffee hour. Admission is free and open to the public.
