Professor Robert George to Speak at Oakland Cathedral this Wednesday!

Our friend Bill May reminds us that the great Professor Robbie George will be speaking at Oakland's Cathedral of Christ the Light this coming Wednesday:

"The Clash of Orthodoxies"
Manhattan Forum Lecture Series features Robert P. George, Ph. D, a principal author of the Manhattan Declaration.

Wed, August 25, 7:00pm – 9:30pm
The Cathedral of Christ the Light Conference Center
2121 Harrison St. Oakland, CA
Admission: $50*

"In the Eighth Manhattan Forum lecture, Robert George will tackle the issues at the heart of the contemporary conflict of worldviews. Secular liberals typically suppose that their positions on morally charged issues of public policy are the fruit of pure reason, while those of their morally conservative opponents reflect an irrational religious faith. George will show that this supposition is wrong on both counts. Challenging liberalism’s claim to represent the triumph of reason, George argues that on controversial issues like abortion, euthanasia, same-sex unions, civil rights and liberties, and the place of religion in public life, traditional Judaeo-Christian beliefs are rationally superior to secular liberal alternatives."

*Registration fee includes admission to the upcoming September 18th Manhattan Forum Conference.
