Is America heading toward a religious freedom collision? Those who hold to an agenda of radical social change are pressing for legal victories that override the consciences of those who seek to live by a set of core convictions rooted in religious belief. Some are even willing to exploit acts of jihadist terrorism by suggesting that the real underlying threat is devotion to religious belief. Grove City College President Paul J. McNulty ’80, and former Deputy Attorney General for President George W. Bush, says, “America’s best hope for surviving the coming challenge is a renewed commitment to the respect of individual conscience as a fundamental premise of the American experiment in constitutional democracy. The core view of the Founders in their framework for ordered liberty was that citizens be free to live according to the dictates of conscience. Appeals for Constitutional protection must yield to this historic foundation.” Join us on March 8 to hear The Honorable Paul J. McNulty ’80 speak about the coming legal collision between our Founders’ conception of constitutional religious liberty and those who are seeking to use the legal system to advance social change.
