[Prescott AZ] Herb Silverman: “Candidate Without a Prayer”
Note: This is a global event that appears on all event calendars.
Yavapai College Secular Student Alliance and the Prescott Freethinkers invite you to join us for the incredible opportunity to meet and welcome Herb Silverman, founder and past president of the Secular Coalition of America and author of Candidate Without A Prayer: An Autobiography of a Jewish Atheist in the Bible Belt. He is also a board member of the American Humanist Association, advisory board member of the Secular Student Alliance, and is an "On Faith" blogger for the Washington Post online. He has appeared in a number of debates on topics like: Can we be moral without God? Does God exist? Is America a Christian nation? He has also debated at the Oxford Union in Oxford, England on the topic: Does American Religion Undermine American Values? The centerpiece of his recent book Candidate Without a Prayer: An Autobiography of a Jewish Atheist in the Bible Belt is the story of his challenge to the South Carolina Constitution and his Supreme Court victory, which paved the way for allowing atheists to hold public office in South Carolina. Flagstaff freethinkers and other secular groups may be joining us as well. Herb's books will be available for purchase (cash or check only) at the event.
