American Atheists Viewpoint

Sunday April 23, 2017

Amanda Knief joins Nick Fish to discuss Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer and the upcoming US Supreme Court hearing regarding Blaine Amendments that are a part of the state constitution in 38 states.  Blaine amendments prohibit government from directly funding church, in an effort to avoid unnecessary church state entanglements.
