"Election 2000: Does Religion Matter?" Forum Slated at Frostburg State University
A panel discussion featuring Rabbi Jack Moline of the Interfaith Alliance will be held at Frostburg State University on Tuesday, Oct. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in Lane Center room 201. It is free and open to the public.
"Election 2000: Does Religion Matter?" will feature Moline's presentation, which will address the historical role of religion in U.S. political campaigns, including both the positive and the more negative, possibly destructive uses of religion during these campaigns. He will also offer comments and insights on the current Presidential campaign.
Following Moline's talk, a panel of FSU faculty and students will pose questions for discussion. Panel participants include: Angelo Bucchino, professor of philosophy; John O'Rorke, assistant professor of political science; Kathy Powell, associate professor of social work; and Michael Llewellyn, president of the Student Government Association. A general question/answer period will conclude the evening's presentation. Rev. Larry Neumark of United Campus Ministry will act as moderator.
Moline is the rabbi of Agudas Achim Congregation of Northern Virginia, in Alexandria. A former president of the Washington Board of Rabbis, he has represented the Rabbinical Assembly in a variety of public policy matters. He is an adjunct faculty member of the Virginia Theological Seminary and has contributed to speeches by President Clinton, including his eulogy for the late Prime Minister Itzaak Rabin of Israel.
This presentation is sponsored by United Campus Ministry, the Interfaith Alliance and FSU's Department of Political Science.
