Lakeside Freethinkers

The Lakeside Freethinkers hold a virtual meeting via Zoom July 21, 4 p.m. Donna Steadman will give a report on Chris Hedges’ book, “American Fascists – the Christian Right and the War on America.”

Twenty-five years ago, when televangelists first spoke of the United States becoming a Christian nation, it was hard to take such rhetoric seriously. Today, such language no longer sounds like an overstatement but poses a very real threat to our freedoms and our way of life. Although written about 14 years ago, the book is probably more relevant now than when it was published in 2008.
