The original U.S. Pledge of Allegiance calls the USA, "one nation...indivisible."  Yet it remains a nation splintered and divided, with many of those divisions fueled by religious ideas.  This broadcast welcomes several special guests to talk about America, the rise of secularism, the influence of the Religious Right, and the future of a country that seems unable to agree about anything. Our guests appearing throughout the broadcast: Amanda Knief: National Legal and Public Policy Director for American Atheists, and author of "The Citizen Lobbyist: A How-to Manual for Making Your Voice Heard in Government." Matthew De Dora: Director of Office of Public Policy for the Center For Inquiry Matthew Bulger: American Humanist Association Justin Scott: Director of Eastern Iowa Atheists Rebecca Markert: Managing Staff Attorney for the Freedom From Religion Foundation Larry Decker: Executive Director for the Secular Coalition for America Herb Silverman: President of the Secular Coalition for America Sarah Levin:  Senior Legislative Representative for the Secular Coalition for America SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS: The Great Courses Plus:  http://www.thegreatcoursesplus.com/seth Stamps.com  http://www.stamps.com (promo code sethandrews)
