Family, Work, and Church After the Same-sex Marriage Decision…


Freedom of speech and religious liberty are once again at the forefront of daily concerns.  What can we anticipate in light of the recent Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex “marriage”?  The loss of tax exemptions?  “Non-discrimination laws” requiring business owners to provide services that violate deeply held religious convictions?  How will the Obergefell decision be taught in the classroom?  How should people of faith respond?  These and similar questions will guide the panel’s discussion of one of the most significant questions of our day.
