Andrew Seidel Book Tour

Snip20190404 1   

FFRF's Director of Strategic Response Andrew L. Seidel will be going on a book tour to promote his first book, The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism Is Un-American. Andrew's work of nonfiction illustrates that, not only are we not a Christian nation, but Judeo-Christian principles are fundamentally opposed to the values on which America was founded. Religion, law, and history collide in this provocative conversation. Hear Andrew speak about his book at one of these events:
