“Fighting Bigotry, Respecting Religion, Valuing Diversity: The Gay Moralist Reflects on the Culture Wars”
John Corvino (Wayne State)
Tuesday, October 11th, 7:00 p.m.
For the past 25 years John Corvino, also known as “the Gay Moralist,” has used his unique combination of logical precision, sensitivity, and humor to bridge divides in the
debate over LGBT rights. In this talk, he reflects on the rhetoric of the current culture
wars—which have largely moved from same-sex marriage to conflicts over religious liberty. In it, he confronts hard questions: How do we fight discrimination while still respecting moral and religious diversity? What’s the difference between having strong convictions and being a “bigot”? And how can we have a productive conversation about all of these topics without trampling on one another’s toes? The talk will include a substantial Q&A component.
