Sarasota News Leader March 8, 2013 Page 106 FAIRCLOTH TO DISCUSS THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT At 7:30 p.m. on March 15, the Congregation for Humanistic Judaism (CHJ) will welcome guest speaker Sean Faircloth, the director of strategy and policy at the Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science. Faircloth's topic will be How the Religious Right Harms All of Us and What We Can Do About It, a news release says. Prior to joining the Dawkins Foundation, Faircloth served as the executive director of the Secular Coalition of America, the release notes. "An accomplished legislator," the release continues, Faircloth served for a decade in the Maine Legislature. He spearheaded more 30 pieces of legislation and is the recipient of innumerable awards, the release adds. Additionally, Faircloth is the author of Attack of the Theocrats, of which a reviewer said, "There's no doubt in my mind that were he zapped back in time to meet Thomas Jefferson, the founding father would clap him on the shoulder and say 'Thanks,'" the release notes. CHJ meets at Unity, located at 3023 Proctor Road in Sarasota. The program is free and open to the public.
