Religious Literacy Really Matters (New)
Designated Dates • 10:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m. • Auditorium
September 21 • October 19
We live in a multi-religious nation where not knowing about the beliefs and customs of these various faiths can cause misunderstanding and prejudice in the workplace, marketplace and classroom. The first lecture will examine the causes of inter-religious misunderstandings and biases and how they might be dispelled. The second will trace how freedom of religion became enshrined in the Constitution so that no one faith had governmental backing and will look at key Supreme Court religion cases and the consequences of the resultant rulings.
