Join the Houston Chapter of AU for a webinar with Dr. Neal Jones.
6 pm Mountain, Monday, March 15th, 2021
In recent years, the Religious Right has resumed an old tactic--distorting the meaning of "religious freedom" in order to justify discrimination against groups they frown upon, including LGBTQ people, women, religious minorities, non-believers and others.
Dr. Neal Jones will discuss how religious extremists are asking state legislatures, Congress and the courts to legalize their bigotry. He'll suggest how we can stand up to those who would harm others in the name of religion.
Dr. Jones is chair of the board of trustees of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
He's been a plaintiff in two AU lawsuits: to prevent South Carolina from issuing state-sponsored Christian license plates and to end the Pennsylvania House of Representatives' policy barring nontheists from offering invocations to open House sessions.
Dr. Jones is a practicing psychologist in Asheville, NC and a Unitarian Universalist minister who has worked in clinical settings and served congregations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas.
