7:30-9:00 p.m.The Myth of Religious Freedom-David Sehat, Georgia State University
Cone Chapel

Based on his 2011 book of the same name, Sehat argues that both liberals and conservatives draw upon a mythical American past when engaging in political conversation about America's religious past.  This incorrect historical foundation has yielded an intractable falseness in our contempory debate on religion in public life.
