If you happen to be in the Washington, D.C. vicinity there’s an event happening Wednesday Nov 28th at the Center for American Progress from 12P to 1P. Gay Activist Bishop Gene Robinson & Senior Fellow, at the Center for American Progress will speak with former Congressman Patrick Murphy, also a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress. They’ll be addressing everything from marriage equality to income inequality & how the role of faith is crucial to the public debate. As we know religion can serve as a weapon to divide & create fear or can be an inclusive force to advance justice & equality. This will be an interesting panel on exploring the role of faith in politics & public policy. Murphy & Robinson will examine marriage equality for same-gender couples, women’s reproductive health, religious liberty & other issues in the news. In addition, Robinson will discuss ideas from his new book, God Believes in Love, where he makes the religious case for marriage equality for same-gender couples. Murphy will reflect on his time in Congress & the role his Catholic faith played in helping him champion a wide range of issues, including gay rights, health reform & women’s health. The conversation will be introduced by Sally Steenland, Director, Faith & Progressive Policy Initiative at the Center for American Progress. A light lunch will be served at 11:30A. The Center for American Progress is at 1333 H St. NW, 10th Floor in Washington, DC.
