"The Constitution, the Supreme Court and Religious Freedom,” is the topic of a special Constitution Day talk Friday at noon at Rockford College’s Maddox Theatre by Dr. Gary Glenn, NIU professor emeritus.
In this Forum Series talk, Glenn discusses how the court, since the 1940s, has modified the Constitution’s original provisions with what he calls "the secularization project.”
This secularization will be contrasted with the original Constitution’s various accommodations of religion including the considerable latitude given to each state to do as it pleased about religion.
The talk is free and open to the public, but a ticket is required. For tickets and other information, contact the Rockford College box office, phone 815-226-4100. For a complete line-up of Forum Series events for this semester, see www.rockford.edu/?ForumSeries.
