“Constitutional Rights to Religious Liberty: The Supreme Court’s Recent Cases on the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses of the First Amendment”
“This academic and interactive program will focus on two, recent decisions of our High Court, addressing the meaning and impact of the Constitution’s protections against governmental establishment of religion and preservations of the right to its free exercise. In addition to describing the factual and legal bases for those landmark rulings, James L. Santelle, the former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin (and long-time supporter of the missions and activities of the Interfaith Conference), will comment on the practical significance of the Supreme Court’s decisions for religious and non-faith-affiliated entities. This 90-minute gathering will also include abundant opportunities for participants to ask questions, offer perspectives, and otherwise comment on these important and topical issues.”

A feature of our 50th Annual Virtual Luncheon, it was created with 3rd year Marquette University student, Ryan Hagan. Ryan is working on a degree in Cognitive Science and Digital Media. He's made other videos for the Marquette Wire, Generations Against Bullying (YouTube), and Walnut Way. His personal objective is to "create high-quality, socially relevant, thought-provoking content." We appreciate and sincerely thank Ryan for his time, talent, technical abilities, and especially his patience in working virtually with me to deliver the video I envisioned.
