Faculty Panel to Discuss Religious Freedom and Intolerance

Bethlehem, Pa., September 25, 2009—Moravian College will hold a panel discussion focusing on religious freedom and the roots of intolerance on Tuesday, September 29 at 4:00 p.m. in the UBC Room in the Haupert Union Building.  The public is welcome to attend and admission is free of charge.

Jason Radine, assistant professor of religion, will moderate the forum. Faculty members on the panel will include Dana Dunn, professor of psychology, Arash Naraghi, assistant professor of religion and philosophy and Jim West, professor of economics and business.

Religious persecution and warfare throughout the ages have distorted the image of faith communities as credible agencies for the promotion of peace. The panel will examine the American experiment in religious freedom, while imperfect, as a role model for the world for tolerance and collaboration among faiths.

The event is  sponsored by Moravian College’s Multi-Faith Council and the Chaplain’s Office. The Haupert Union Building is located near the corner of Monocacy and Locust Streets in Bethlehem. For information, call 610 861-1491.

Moravian College is a private, coeducational, selective liberal arts college located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Tracing its founding to 1742, it is recognized as America's sixth-oldest college. Visit the Web site at www.moravian.edu.
