Do We Truly Believe in Pluralism and Diversity? Faith-Based Organizations’ Religious Freedom Rights – Stephen Monsma Lecture

March 6, 2012
Kayser Auditorium
3:30 p.m.

Stephen V. Monsma’s  lecture argues faith-based organizations that provide health, educational, and social services to the public are facing increasing legal pressures to tone down or abandon their religiously-based practices.  It then goes on to argue that worldviews rooted in Catholic and evangelical Protestant thinking protect the religious freedom rights of faith-based organizations, and thereby pluralism and diversity, better than do worldviews rooted in secularist thinking.

“Monsma is the dean of scholars who study religion and politics in America. You don’t need to agree with all or even most of his policy-relevant conclusions to marvel at the deep erudition, moral balance, and civic spirit that inform each and every page of Pluralism and Freedom. And you can’t claim to have a truly informed and considered opinion on the most controversial church-state issues of our day unless you have read this latest gem of a book by Monsma.”
