At a time when so much else is at stake, why do our nation’s politics remain fixated on the culture wars? The Texas Freedom Network Education Fund is partnering with the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University in January to explore the turbulent intersection of religion and politics in America.
The “Religion in the 2012 Elections” symposium on January 25 in Houston will feature some of the nation’s most distinguished scholars, interesting commentators and informed experts on politics and public opinion. The afternoon event will include panelists such as John Green of the Pew Research Center’s Forum for Religion and Public Life, Anna Greenberg from the national public opinion research firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, author and Gordon College President D. Michael Lindsay and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Leonard Pitts. Pitts will speak again at a special TFN Education Fund event that evening.
Admission to the symposium is free. Tickets to the Pitts event that evening are $20.
