  • The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism Is Un-American

    Join us to hear Andrew Seidel, attorney for the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF.org), author, and activist, talk about his new book, The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism Is Un-American.

    Do “In God We Trust,” the Declaration of Independence, and other historical “evidence” prove that America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles? Are the Ten Commandments the basis for American law? A constitutional attorney dives into the debate about religion’s role in America’s founding.

    In today’s contentious political climate, understanding religion’s role in American government is more important than ever. Christian nationalists assert that our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and advocate an agenda based on this popular historical claim. But is this belief true? The Founding Myth answers the question once and for all. Andrew L. Seidel, a constitutional attorney at the Freedom from Religion Foundation, builds his case point by point, comparing the Ten Commandments to the Constitution and contrasting biblical doctrine with America’s founding philosophy, showing that the Bible contradicts the Declaration of Independence’s central tenets. Thoroughly researched, this persuasively argued and fascinating book proves that America was not built on the Bible and that Christian nationalism is, in fact, un-American.


    Andrew L. Seidel works as a constitutional attorney at the Freedom from Religion Foundation, litigating cases involving religion and the Constitution. He has appeared on Fox and Friends, MSNBC, and The O'Reilly Factor; numerous radio shows; speaks and writes extensively about religious freedom; and has been profiled on BBC News, BuzzFeed, International Business Times, and more.
