Third Thursday Lecture & Discussion Series: Religious Arguments in Support of Marriage Equality

Posted by isulib on October 15, 2013

10/17/2014 – Third Thursday Lecture & Discussion Series: Religious  Arguments in Support of Marriage Equality (7:30 pm – 8:30 pm) in room 028

Historically, Americans have invoked religious beliefs and doctrines to both justify discriminatory practices such as slavery and the subjugation of women, and to argue against such practices. Contemporary debates around marriage equality thus at times resemble past discussions surrounding slavery and women’s rights. This program will explore some of the ways that writers and scholars from different faith traditions have been able to reconcile their religious beliefs with support for marriage equality.

Speaker: Dr. Tom Johnson, Department of Psychology. The Center for the Study of Health, Religion, & Spirituality, Indiana State University
