Our government has been hijacked by the religious right, and Sean Faircloth wants to return it to its secular past – and he has a plan to do just that. Faircloth is president of Global Secular Organizing & Strategy, or GSOS. I talk to Faircloth about his plan, called SecularityUSA. It uses state-based volunteers – included members of the clergy – and is focused on both short-term and long-term goals. The project’s springboard is the 2016 Iowa Caucuses for the next presidential election. Faircloth served as Director of Strategy & Policy at the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science, and served as Secular Coalition for America’s Executive Director, creating its 50-state plan. He is author of Attack of the Theocrats!: How the Religious Right Harms Us All-and What We Can Do About It.
