FAITH & POLITICS: public invited to CU for Christian Perspectives

"...This discussion goes to the very heart of our first amendment right of freedom of religion..." - John E. Chowning
Campbellsville Universitys Kentucky Heartland Institute on Public Policy (KHIPP) will host The Fifth Annual Christian Perspectives on Public Policy Issues: Church and State on Tuesday, April 4, 2006 at 5:00 p.m. in The Little Auditorium of The Student Union Building,

"CU's Kentucky Heartland Institute on Public Policy is pleased to be hosting this forum on 'church and state' issues," says John Chowning who will moderate the question and answers session, "There is substantial discussion and debate about church and state in today's public policy arena at the federal and state levels. There are variant Christian perspectives on the nexus of faith and politics, and we are fortunate to have a distinguished panel of specialists who will discuss this very important topic.

This discussion goes to the very heart of our first amendment right of freedom of religion. However, there is not complete agreement with the faith community on what this means. As always with our KHIPP series, this event is free and open to the public."

Guest speakers include Mr. Stephen K. Reeves, Staff Attorney for The Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty, Dr. Barrett Duke, Vice President for Research and Director of the Research Institute of the Southern Baptist Convention Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, and Dr. Kenneth McIntyre, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Campbellsville University.

Dr. Ken McIntyre will give an overview on the Church and State including the pros and cons, with Mr. Stephen Reeves sharing The Baptist Joint Committee Perspective, and Dr. Barrett Duke sharing The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission Perspective.

The Kentucky Heartland Institute on Public Policy (KHIPP) at Campbellsville University was established for purposes of focusing attention on and debate of public policy issues at the regional, state, national, and international level. The event is open and free to the general public
