ON-Lion Letter

On October 6, Bradley Prize recipient Robert P. George will deliver the Foreign Policy Research Institute's (FPRI's) annual Templeton Lecture on Religion and World Affairs in Philadelphia.  One of America’s -- and more precisely, one of Philadelphia’s -- greatest contributions to the world is freedom of conscience, the idea that people should be free to practice their religion, or not to practice at all.  Today, as ISIS gives people the choice to die or convert, while others in various parts of the world flee for their lives because of different varieties of religious intolerance, George's Templeton Lecture will be about "The State of International Religious Freedom and Why It Matters."

George holds Princeton University's McCormick Chair in Jurisprudence and is the founding director of its James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions.  He is vice chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.  His many books include Making Men Moral:  Civil Liberties and Public Morality and The Clash of Orthodoxies:  Law, Religion and Morality in Crisis.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation supports both FPRI and the James Madison Program.  George also serves on the Bradley Foundation's Board of Directors.

Reservations are required for the lecture.
