Kate Clinton, Lizz Winstead, and More Star in 92Y's COMEDY, CONVERSATION, AND CONTROVERSY, 9/8
After the Supreme Court's controversial ruling in Hobby Lobby, the subject of religious freedom is as heated as it's ever been-and it's time for a dose of humor.
"Comedy, Conversation, & Controversy" stars nationally known performers Kate Clinton, Lizz Winstead and a special guest will be held at the 92nd Street YMCA's Kaufmann Concert Hall in New York City on Sept. 8. It offers an evening of thought-provoking humor and engaging conversation that will showcase why the intersection of politics, social criticism and old-fashioned outrage is sometimes the funniest place to be.
The event is a benefit for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group that fights for religious freedom.
"We are thrilled to have some outstanding performers supporting the cause of church-state separation" said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. "Anybody who thinks the Constitution can't be funny - at least as our Supreme Court twists it - will be in for a big surprise at this event."

Americans United is a religious liberty watchdog group based in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1947, the organization educates Americans about the importance of church-state separation in safeguarding religious freedom.
