2:00 p.m. Hear Dr. Marvin Young discuss the issue of why so many otherwise sensible people support or acquiesce in the use of state power to promote religion in our schools while at the same time believing, or at least professing to believe, that such promotion does not violate the separation of church and sate.

Choose the right, let the consequences follow, will answer how we can advocate a return to real principals in public life. Steve Young, the Democratic candidate for the California 48th Congressional seat, will be speaking about his view on faith: the value and importance of making difficult decisions based on principles rather than going along with the crowd.
