Anglocat at the Forum

If you're in New York City on Sunday, c'mon by:
The Forum

LOCATION: The Church
TIME: 10:05 am
Sunday, July 26, 2015
The Rev. John Wirenius, lawyer and constitutional scholar, newly ordained Deacon, novelist, and long-time active St. Bartian, comments on theological and legal facets of the Supreme Court’s June 26 decision on same-sex marriage and its intersection with “religious liberty.”

Each Sunday at 10:05 a.m., we gather for a forum that helps us further connect faith with life. Programs range from clergy teaching; expository Bible study; explorations of theology, social concerns, philosophical questions; and very occasionally matters of St. Bart's ministry and mission.
There's coffee and lemonade on offer, too...

I hope you'll address the increasing reluctance to refer to religious liberty without "scare quotes."

I plan to set it in context--to talk about the 19th Century cases limiting it, its rebirth in the 20th Century, and then the retreat in Employment Division v Smith, as the precipitating factory of RFRA and state versions.

And then get int the difficult question sod line drawing. So, we'll be taking it seriously, while noting how it's become controversial.
