March 2020 Intern Reading Group - CANCELED: Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery
Please join us for the next meeting of the Faith & Law Intern Reading Group on Thursday, March 19th from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in 2322 Rayburn House Office Building to talk about the commandment to not commit adultery. How (if at all) should this affect a Christian understanding of public policy?
We will be reading excerpts from Martin Luther, Rusty Reno, and David French, who are all—in various ways—attempting to think through this question. Should Christians try to enforce a biblical sexual morality or will this result in the kind of dystopian vision depicted in Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale?
The full reading should only take ten minutes but even if you don’t have time to read in advance you should be able to follow along with our discussion of the texts. *Lunch is provided, but please bring your own drink.* Also, feel free to invite a friend or colleague!
(If you have some extra time, you might also read this article on C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien's disagreement about enforcing Christian beliefs on marriage.)
