The Clash of Orthodoxies, Manhattan Forum Lecture at the St. Anthony of Padua Institute

Published Date: August 25, 2010 | Topics: Politics and Current Affairs, Religion


In this lecture, the eighth in the Manhattan Forum series, Dr. Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, tackles the issues at the heart of the contemporary conflict of worldviews. Secular liberals typically suppose that their positions on morally charged issues of public policy are the fruit of pure reason, while those of their morally conservative opponents reflect an irrational religious faith. George shows that this supposition is wrong on both counts. Challenging liberalism’s claim to represent the triumph of reason, George argues that on controversial issues like abortion, euthanasia, same-sex unions, civil rights and liberties, and the place of religion in public life, traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs are rationally superior to secular liberal alternatives.
