Herb's 3/4/2018 Debate in Columbia Now Posted in SHL Video LibraryDid you miss the debate between Herb Silverman and Richard Howe? Not to worry, you can see it here now.
SHL President Quoted in P&C ArticleFrom the article Should Charleston stop issuing parking tickets near churches on Sunday mornings?: "We all seem to agree that the government cannot persecute people because of their religions," said Alex Kasman, a math [professor] at the College of Charleston who is president of the Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry. "But, in practice, there is no difference between rewarding the followers of some religions and punishing the people with other religious views. This policy, which seems designed to exempt churchgoers from the usual laws, therefore runs against the Constitutional guarantee of freedom of religion.".
