The Upstate South Carolina chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State is hosting a discussion with Jeffrey Selman, author of God Sent Me: A Textbook Case on Evolution vs. Creation.
God Sent Me is the account of one citizen making himself heard, and taking action to preserve constitutional protections amidst the conflict between evolutionary science and religion-based creationism. When the public school board in Cobb County, Georgia glued a disclaimer against evolution into the county’s new science textbooks, the implications were clear: the separation of church and state, and high-quality education were at risk. Author Jeffrey Selman (now Americans United for Separation of Church and State Atlanta chapter President), several other like-minded citizens, and the American Civil Liberties Union, marched into battle with a lawsuit against the forces undermining science education. This narrative shines a light on just what it takes to protect freedom and reminds the average citizen to “wake up and get to work and not to solely rely upon other citizens fighting to protect our freedom!"
The event will take place on Saturday, August 15th at 1:30 pm at the Coffee Underground at 1 Coffee St., Greenville. Copies of God Sent Me book are available for $15, cash or check.
