The First Amendment states that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." However, the phrase "separation of church and state" itself does not appear in the United States Constitution. Faith and religion clearly have an influence in politics but how much influence should it have?

We will have three panelist, from a Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faith background to talk about their perspective:

- Kerry Hasler-Brooks, Ph.D, Assistant Professor, Messiah College, Grantham PA.
- Rabbi Jason Bonner, Congregation Beth Or, Maple Glen
- Rubina Tareen, Chaplin, Alvernia University, Reading, PA

Facilitator: Jared Byas

When: February 14, 2018 7:00 - 8:30 PM
