Third Thursday lecture at ISU to address religion, marriage equality

TERRE HAUTE — The ISU Center for the Study of Health Religion and Spirituality is scheduled to present the second of its monthly Third Thursday Lecture and Discussion Series programs at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 17.

According to a press release: “Historically, Americans have invoked religious beliefs and doctrines to both justify discriminatory practices such as slavery and the subjugation of women and to argue against such practices. Contemporary debates around marriage equality thus at times resemble past discussions surrounding slavery and women’s rights.”

The program will explore ways writers and scholars from different “faith traditions” have been able to reconcile their beliefs with support for marriage equality.

The program,  free and open to the public, will be in room 028 of Cunningham Memorial Library.
