Event description

Description

The Center for Ethics and Leadership invites current students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and guests to a lunchtime discussion of The Church and Transgender Identity. Recommended reading: https://www.commonwealmagazine.org/church-transgender-identity.

Article exerpt: "One side views accepting an individual’s chosen identity as paramount and resistance not as simply erroneous, but downright offensive. . .Yet the other side views the plain reality of male and female biology as so obvious (and often as a matter of religious truth) that it can envision no possibility of acceptance. What has increasingly resulted from this opposition are not reasoned arguments, but acts of coercion—whether in the Obama administration’s well-publicized anti-discrimination directives compelling schools and hospitals to accommodate “an individual’s internal sense of gender,” or in such backlash responses as North Carolina’s infamous “bathroom bill"

Lunch (with vegetarian options) will be provided with a RSVP. Seats go fast! Please register soon.
