Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Paul Waldman (The American Prospect)

On The Posner Show, Sarah and Paul discuss this weekend’s Reason Rally. Should a secularist movement model itself on the Christian Coalition? They examine obstacles to a secularist movement gaining political influence and whether religious groups will always have an advantage.

Can those two factions unite around protecting church-state separation? Plus: Do secularists need better public advocates than Richard Dawkins?
