Gay marriage opponent to speak at UM

He's been called "the country's most influential conservative Christian thinker" and he'll be speaking in Missoula this week as part of the President's lecture series at the University of Montana. Robert P. George is a Princeton University professor, author and chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. He's also past chairman of the National Organization for Marriage, one of the groups opposing the legalization of same sex marriage.
   In this feature interview, George talks with News Director Sally Mauk about gay marriage - and about recent legal cases charging violation of religious freedom - like the one challenging the Affordable Care Act's requirement that employers provide their workers insurance coverage for contraception and abortion-inducing drugs.


[ Robert P. George will give a free public lecture on the nature and scope of religious freedom, Thursday evening, May 1st, at eight o'clock in the University Center ballroom on the University of Montana campus.]

Retired in 2014 but still a presence at MTPR, Sally Mauk is a University of Kansas graduate and former wilderness ranger who has reported on everything from the Legislature to forest fires.
