MAINTAINING RELIGIOUS VALUES IN THE POLITICAL SETTING A DISCUSSION WITH CONGRESSMAN VERNON J. EHLERS - Mar 26, 2003
March 26, 2003 - Why do we have a government? Why do we need a government? What is unique about the founding of the United States government? What is unique about the way the U.S. government deals with religious beliefs and the relationship between government and religious institutions in America? What is the appropriate role of an officeholder's faith in the exercising of his or her duties in office? How should we accommodate the many religious faiths in our country as we develop public policy? How do we maintain our religious values in a secular government?
These and other questions, including audience questions, will be discussed by Congressman Vernon J. Ehlers of the Michigan 3rd Congressional District at a free lecture sponsored by the Aquinas Emeritus College as he totally disregards the old adage, "Two subjects you should never discuss in polite company are religion or politics."
The lecture will take place on Monday, April 28, 2003, from 10 to 11 a.m. in Jarecki/Lacks Center, room 141, on the Aquinas College campus. Ample free parking is available adjacent to the Jarecki/Lacks Center. The lecture is free and open to the public. The Lacks Center is located at 159 Woodward Lane S. E. Woodward Lane runs between Robinson Road and East Fulton.
