posted on June 15, 2017

Religion News Service’s Lauren Markoe interviews the Rev. Barry Lynn, who is retiring as the head of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a nonprofit advocacy organization. Markoe writes, “In court, in congressional hearings and on cable television, Lynn has led the fight against school-sponsored prayer, religious symbols on public property and any law that allows government to privilege people of faith.” Lynn, an ordained minister, said, “I always tell humanist groups, I am not here to convert you, I’m just here to tell you that if we have to figure whether God exists in order to save the Constitution, it will be dead and we’ll still be arguing about God in 2,000 years.”
