Christian religious traditions have historically engaged in addressing poverty and given considerably less thought to whether or how spiritual values should apply to public policy issues related to the environment and the risk of nuclear war. This event will present the findings of an extensive study of 1,500 Americans that explored how individuals’ religious beliefs and spiritual values relate to these public policy issues.
Steven Kull, the Director of PIPA, will give a brief presentation of the study’s findings, which will be followed by a panel discussion with:
John Steinbruner, Director of CISSM;
Galen Carey, Vice President of Government Relations, National Association of Evangelicals; and
Stephen M. Colecchi, Director, Office of International Justice and Peace, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
The discussion will address the study’s implications for policymakers and religious leaders of various denominations.
