Christians promote rather than just tolerate religious freedom — it is a political principle rooted in our convictions about the fallibility of human nature and the limited competence of any government, as well as an affirmation of human dignity. Yet in supporting religious freedom, Christians support the rights of individuals and organizations to live and act consistently with their differing—and even offensive—beliefs (within limits). Fairness for All does just that. When it comes to differing convictions about sexuality and marriage, Fairness for All creates a legal framework that allows both those committed to progressive views on sexuality and those committed to historical Christian views to live as good neighbors. Shapri LoMaglio will explicate how Fairness for All presents a model to protect all citizens and organizations in light of our nation’s diverse convictions about sexuality.
LoMaglio directs the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) in their response to legislative, legal, and regulatory changes that affect its membership, educates CCCU institutions on such matters, and advocates on their behalf in Washington, D.C. She writes and speaks on issues of higher education and religious liberty.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
