Gonzaga University Flannery Lecture (TIME CHANGE)

March 23, 2017

Patrick McCormick, Ph.D., professor of religious studies at Gonzaga University, will discuss “American Religious Violence: Examining the Beam in Our National Eye.” McCormick will explore the questions: “Why is the most religious and Christian nation in the developed world also the planet’s leading military power, arms merchant, jail keeper and poisoner of creation? What is it about Americans’ belief in nationalism, consumerism and individualism that makes us so willing to sacrifice and scapegoat others in service of these idols, and how can our Christian faith and Catholic theology respond to this plague of religious violence?”
