The Future of Religion in Politics

Eight leading scholars from across America will convene at the Regent University Theatre on Feb. 2 for the 2nd annual Ronald Reagan Symposium to discuss the future of religion in American politics.
Featured speakers will include Michael Barone, Senior Writer, U.S. News & World Report and Marvin Olasky, editor-in-chief of WORLD magazine. Speech topics include, “George Washington on Religion’s Place in Public Life,” “Red God, Blue God: Is There a God Gap between the Parties?” “Left Turn? Evangelicals and the Future of the Religious Right.” Also featured will be Hadley Arkes of Amherst College, Michael Cromartie from the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Daniel Dreisbach of Princeton University, Jean Bethke Elshtain of the University of Chicago, Darryl Hart from the Intercollegiate Studies Institute and Michael Novak from the American Enterprise Institute.

All speeches will address the central question: How can religion and politics become like glue bonding us together rather than like sharp scissors cutting us apart?
