The Kern County AU chapter’s May 7th event featured Rev. Steven Baines, Assistant Field Director for Religious Outreach. Steven spoke to us about the value and importance of church-state separation from a religious perspective. The event touched on the National Day of Prayer and the far more important ideas surrounding the First Amendment and the religious liberties granted to us in the Constitution. Steven reminded us of the need for a strong wall of separation between church and state and the attacks on it by the religious right.The event proved to be an excellent kick-off to what we hope will be a series of chapter events.
