Connections: Reverend Barry Lynn on the separation of church and state

Oct 24, 2017

One of the most prominent opponents of the political marriage between Republicans and Evangelical Christians is an ordained Christian minister. Barry Lynn is also the executive director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. He says he sees an ongoing threat in which houses are worship are treated like political bases. This is timely, as President Trump presses his case that Christianity is under attack, mobilizing a base of voters that helped elect him.

Lynn is in Rochester a guest of the local chapter, and he tells us how he views church-and-state issues over his 25 years leading the organization.
