Repeal the Johnson Amendment? Americans United for the Separation of Church and State Executive Director Rev. Barry Lynn

Guest host Rabbi Jay Michaelson, filling in for Rev. Welton Gaddy from snowbound Brooklyn, will be joined by Rev. Barry Lynn, longtime executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Rev. Lynn will discuss the purpose and practice of the Johnson Amendment and cut through the disinformation coming from the political religious right. He’ll also share his experience working with Rev. Gaddy to fend off a challenge to the amendment in 2002 and tell listeners how they can protect church-state separation during the Trump years.
