Ep 29 Council for National Policy
4 days ago
Sunday February 19, 2017 With Betsy DeVos recently confirmed as the US Secretary of Education, Nick takes an opportunity to discuss a recent document created by the Council for National Policy which is advocating “restoration of education in America...and enshrine historic Judeo-Christian principles” into the public school systems. President Trump’s cabinet has numerous ties with this organization, and the influence it has represents a clear and present danger to the idea of keeping religion and government separate. American Atheists is a national 501(c)(3) organization that defends civil rights for atheists, freethinkers, and other nonbelievers; works for the total separation of religion and government; and addresses issues of First Amendment public policy.
