Last week, a billboard in Charlotte erected by a statewide atheist group was vandalized. The sign originally read “One Nation Indivisible,” and someone recently spray painted “Under God” on the sign.

Join a panel of Political Scientists, Constitution and Religion professors to explore the roots of the debate.
