Description

Join us for "By Their Love: Violence in Defense of Christian Hegemony" with Ed Brayton.

From the 1940s to the present day, those who challenge Christian domination over the culture are almost always the victims of bullying, intimidation, and vandalism. Though Christians proclaim that we will know them by their love, peaceful dissenters have been the targets of outright violence. The abuse from Christians aimed at those who file lawsuits involving separation of church and state will be discussed.
