Athenaeum Aidutorium


The Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture is organizing three public forums this spring on issues pertaining to religious freedom and religious expression in Indiana. The series is co-sponsored by the Consortium for the Study of Religion, Ethics, and Society.

The first forum will be on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), both the federal and Indiana laws. Does the appearance of these laws suggest a conflict between liberty and equality, specifically between religious liberty and equality of access to goods and services? If so, what do our public choices say about our culture and its ethical values?

Participants will include Kate Blair, Director of Advocacy at ACLU Indiana; James Bopp, Attorney for the Indiana Family Institute and American Family Association of Indiana; Beth Cate, Professor at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at IU-Bloomington; and David Craig, Professor of Religious Studies at IUPUI.
