Warren to Discuss Religious Freedom at Georgetown Univ.


The talk will be held at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs and will be streamed live.

According to The Christian Post, Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. will host a formal discussion on religious freedom this week featuring Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren. The talk will be held at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs and will also feature Timothy Shah from the Religious Freedom Project, who will sponsor the forum. Shah called Warren “a leading voice in America on behalf of religious freedom for all people, both here and abroad.”

Warren has gone on record on behalf of Hobby Lobby, the craft store giant fighting to avoid the birth control mandate in the Affordable Care Act, and has called President Barack Obama “absolutely” unfriendly to religion.

Shah and Warren will discuss religious liberty and how effective religion is among poor segments of the population and countries just starting out as democracies.

Shah hoped that those who attend the discussion “will leave this event with a new understanding of why religious freedom is important to individuals — whether they are believers or not — and to societies in general; why it is in global crisis; and why they should care.”

The event will be streamed live online on Tuesday, February 12; get more information at You will also be able to view a recorded version of the discussion at
