University Forum: Constitution Day Lecture - Religious FreedomWhen: Sep. 17, 2012, 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Campus Location: Marjorie Barrick Museum / Harry Reid Center
Office/Remote Location: Auditorium
Join the College of Liberal Arts in the University Forum Lecture "Contraception and the Constitution: Tensions in the Protection of Religious Liberty" a talk by Ted G. Jelen, professor, Department of Political Science, UNLV.
The recent controversy over the requirement that employers in organizations affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church provide contraceptive services to their female employees illustrates a more general conflict over the meaning of religious freedom in the United States. Is the requirement an unconstitutional restriction of the free exercise of religion, or would waiving the requirement for religious organizations constitute an illegitimate establishment of religion? This question will be examined in the context of differing conceptions of the religion clauses of the First Amendment.
This event is free and open to the public.
