In a post-Roe America, what might the Founding Fathers have said? Dan Barker, co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF), will discuss the centuries of conflict between democracy and religion in America and what the original originalists did say. An evangelical minister turned atheist and the author of ten books on freethought, Dan has appeared on national television talk shows from Oprah Winfrey to Bill O’Reilly.
Dan will speak on September 10th at 2 p.m. at the Civic Center branch of the S.F. Public Library, Latino/Hispanic Room (lower level).

FFRF is the nation’s largest freethought association with more than 30,000 members: atheists, agnostics and skeptics of any pedigree. The purposes of the Freedom From Religion Foundation are to promote the constitutional principle of separation of state and church, and to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism.
