    Too Liberal for Religion

     
    Why do so many progressives shy away from identifying as “religious,” and should our society attempt to reverse this trend? Do liberals believe that science and religion don’t mix, or that their politics are at odds with the church? Do they question the educational value of myths, or the necessity of building community around shared rituals? Are there more atheists now, or just more people who prefer to identify as “spiritual”? And what should we think of those who engage in religious practices without ascribing to the religion (e.g. yoga, meditation, etc.)?

     
    Chris Stedman will be signing and selling his book, Faitheist, at the close of the event in the lobby.

     
    Thursday, October 22, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
    Main Function Room, Suffolk Law School, 120 Tremont Street
