Secularism,  Stateside

Separation of Church and School

I had the pleasure last week of meeting a very articulate 18 year old student who took on his New Jersey high school because a teacher was using his classroom to evangelise about Christianity, promoting creationism (in a History class!), and even went as far as telling non-Christian students they were “going to hell”. 

Matt LaClair tells his story – and discusses the issue of keeping religion out of the classroom – with comedian Christina Martin, in this four part interview I filmed for the National Secular Society.

If you want to hear more, there are parts two, three and four.
