Separation of Church and State Last week, a billboard in Charlotte erected by a statewide atheist group was vandalized. The sign originally read "One Nation Indivisible," and someone recently spray painted "Under God" on the sign. We'll use this incident as a jumping off point into the often controversial topic of religion, the constitution and the separation of Church and State. Join a panel of Political Scientists, Constitution and Religion professors to explore the roots of the debate. Guests Dr. Anne Blue Wills - Assoc. Professor of Religion at Davidson College Dr. John Szmer - Asst. Professor of Political Science at UNC Charlotte Dr. Scott Huffmon - Assoc. Professor of Political Science and Director of the Social & Behavioral Research Lab at Winthrop University WFAE | Atheist Group's Sign On Billy Graham Parkway Vandalized Click here to add and read comments
