2018 Leadership Institute: Religious Support and Free Exercise

 

GA2018LI-ReligiousSupportIn the 2018 Leadership Institute seminar Religious Support and Free Exercise, Daniel Blomberg discussed some of the legal challenges faced by chaplains, ministers, and churches in the current cultural climate.

“There are a lot of folks who want to bang the drum about the culture wars,” he said, “and one side of the conversation is that there are people who know that if they can make you afraid you will give up and not fight. But it’s important to remember that if you don’t protect those religious beliefs you don’t have—or may even abhor—you can’t stand for religious liberty as a whole. So there are debates, but if we have the right understanding of religious liberty, we can turn down the temperature.”

Blomberg’s seminar was part of the annual EPC Chaplain’s Workshop. He is Senior Counsel for Becket Law in Washington, D.C., a leading religious liberty law firm.

    regarding supporting our Chaplains – appreciate the visbility into their work. Would like to know more how they / Vets / Active duty folks could be supported (hands on support from our congregation) in addition to prayer support. I idn’t know we had a VA chaplain in the Los Angeles area….
