Listen to internet radio with NationalProgressiveTalkRadio on Blog Talk Radio


Sean Faircloth is an author, attorney and politician who served five terms in the Maine Legislature. His time in office included appointments on both the Judiciary and Appropriations Committees. At the end of his tenure, Faircloth was elected Majority Whip by his colleagues. During his tenure in office, Faircloth successfully spearheaded over thirty laws, including the so-called Deadbeat Dad child support law which was later incorporated into federal law. In 2009 Faircloth became the executive director of the Secular Coalition for America, where he advocated for separation of church and state and greater acceptance of nontheistic viewpoints in American life. The Democrat has also spoken around the country extensively, addressing topics such as the U.S. Constitution, children’s policy, obesity policy, and sex crime law. In September 2011 he became the Director of Strategy and Policy for the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science and was the opening speaker for Dawkins’ book tour. 

Faircloth published his work Attack of the Theocrats! How the Religious Right Harms Us All — and What We Can Do About It in February 2012. The book contains a foreword written by Richard Dawkins and explores the many ways that state and federal legal codes privilege religion, ultimately demonstrating that religious bias harms all Americans. Fairthcloth is currently blogging for the Richard Dawkins Foundation website and delivering public speeches on secularism and “the dangers of theocratic laws, and the value of scientific policy.”

  1. Sean Faircloth is a good egg and I wish him fame and fortune in his endeavours!
    Maybe he will acquire sufficient reputation to flatten the tits on Fox TV who are all Theists.
    I remember RD ‘s body language when being interviewed by Bill O’Reilly in which the latter just kept uttering meaningless monologues to eat up the time .
    The expression on RD’s face was one of mild polite impatience at the machinations of a believing fool!
    Maybe Sean can assume this role?
