And Justice for All? The Promise of Religious Liberty in a Pluralistic World
The Russo Family Lecture, Sponsored by the Fordham Center on Religion and Culture
Tuesday, May 16, 2017 | 6 p.m.
113 West 60th Street | Pope Auditorium | Lowenstein Center
Fordham University | Lincoln Center Campus | New York City
At a time when human rights and human lives are at risk in America and abroad, how can we reconcile conflicting views of how religious beliefs relate to public policy? Is religious freedom a veil for bigotry or an essential protection against sectarian persecution?
Join us as we explore the contentious issue of religious liberty and its intersection with immigration, health care, same-sex marriage, and other issues.
