Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville
“Religion and the Republic: Parent, Prophet, or Problem?” will be presented by William Everett at the June 21, 2020 meeting of the Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville, 2:30-4 p.m. by Zoom videoconference. Zoom connection info is at EHSAsheville.org. All are welcome to attend.
Our Constitutional order was established to be legitimated by Reason rather than Religion. The Jeffersonian “separation” of religion from government, however, could not be filled by Reason alone. A “civil religion” arose to provide a general transcendent basis for our Constitutional Republic. Both our heritage of Reason and this Civil Religion are now in grave disarray, threatened by a return to patriarchal Christianity. This talk explores the nature of this crisis and formulates some possible responses to this major challenge.
