"On God's Authority": Religious Liberty in a Marriage-Equality World
Phi Sigma Tau in association with The UMKC Philosophy Department is pleased to present author, lecturer, and professor of Philosophy John Corvino. Dr. John Corvino will be presenting his lecture, "On God's Authority": Religious Liberty in a Marriage-Equality World, at the Diastole Scholar's Center, November 6th at 4pm-7pm. Dr. Corvino’s lecture will explore the recent same sex marriage laws and current social issues; should clerks be compelled to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples, despite religious objections? What about photographers who don't want to photograph same-sex weddings, or bakers who don't want to bake their wedding cakes? In this talk, philosopher John Corvino will draw on his 25 years of experience as an LGBT-rights advocate in the "Culture Wars" to shed light on the emerging conflicts. Phi Sigma Tau invites you to come and enjoy refreshments and discussion at this relevant philosophic debate. This event was made possible by the Bernardin-Haskell Lecture Fund. Our thanks to them.
