In this month's episode of the Humanist Hour, Jes Constantine heads to Cranston, RI to hear the local residents, students, and teachers voice their opinion about the Cranston High School West prayer banner. Also, listen to Ellery Schempp tell the story of his landmark US Supreme Court case from over 50 years ago, ruling government sanctioned prayer unconstitutional.
Hosts Jes Constantine and Todd Stiefel also discuss the recent announcement that Foundation Beyond Belief is now a "Special Friend" team partner with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) for their Light The Night Walks. The goal is to unite the Freethought Movement around the world to raise one million U.S. Dollars in 2012. This would make us the first team in LLS history to bring in more than $1,000,000 in their first year!
