Center for Public Justice leader discusses Christianity, tolerance, Nov. 22-23
Posted November 19, 2002; 06:51 p.m.
James Skillen, president of the Center for Public Justice, a Christian policy research group, will hold two upcoming talks: "Is Christianity too Politically Incorrect to be Politically Relevant?" at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22, and "Tolerance, Pluralism and the End of Religion?" at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23.
Both lectures will be held in Betts Auditorium in the School of Architecture. They are sponsored by the Manna Christian Fellowship , the USG Projects Board, the Office of the Dean Undergraduate Students and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
Skillen's first lecture will cover the current U.S.-Iraq situation and topics such as just wars, international norms of justice and the role of the United States in the world. In his second talk, Skillen will address whether the rise of religion means the end of tolerance and pluralism.
Prior to being named president in September 2000, Skillen had served as the Annapolis, Md.-based center's executive director since 1981. He is the author of several books, including "A Covenant to Keep: Meditations on the Biblical Theme of Justice" (2000).
