Alan Litchfield just did an interview for his Malcontent’s Gambit Podcast with the Secular Coalition for America’s Edwina Rogers. They spoke about the SCA’s 50-state expansion, the current presidential race, and her Republican party affiliation.
One of the things the struck me was when she was asked about the #1 issue the secular community faces that she’s working on. She responds by mentioning the White House Faith Based Initiatives office and how religious groups are getting taxpayer money (and discriminating in their hiring along the way). A couple of months ago, I called her out for not saying that, so it sounds like she’s really settling into this role and learning about our concerns.
Despite her past work (on non-social-issues) with really awful politicians, Rogers seems to be doing a pretty good job in her new position.
