• Bruce Prescott’s Stalwart Secularism

    Yesterday, Ed Brayton highlighted a few excerpts from my old friend Bruce Prescott, who has been challenging the Ten Commandments monument here in the Oklahoma state courts (not to be confused with the other legal challenge in the federal courts). Longtime science education advocate Victor Hutchison weighs in:

    Bruce Prescott is an energetic activist on separation issues and former member on the national board of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. I consider him a friend and colleague who serves with us on the Board of Oklahomans for Excellence in Science Education. He and I testified together against anti-evolution and attempts to place religion in public schools before the Oklahoma House Education Committee. I fully agree with his statement on the monument and his reasoning.

    I strongly concur! If you’d like to hear more from Bruce on why he got involved in the Ten Commandments case, and what it means to be devoutly religious and fervently secular at the same time, we interviewed him on the Oklahoma Atheists Godcast a little while back. The audio is a bit sketchy on his end, but still worth a go.

    Also have an old video up of (Baptist Pastor) Bruce Prescott debating (Baptist Pastor) Steve Kern on the nature of the American Founding, which I really ought to have titled BAPTIST PASTOR SECULAR SMACKDOWN:
