Panel to Defend Traditional Sexual Morality

October 7, 2010

STEUBENVILLE, OH (MetroCatholic) - Flying into strong cultural headwinds, a distinguished panel of bioethicists at Franciscan University will discuss “Defending Traditional Sexual Morality” on Friday, October 15, 7:30 p.m., in the Tony and Nina Gentile Gallery, J.C. Williams Center.

Dr. Patrick Lee, the John N. and Jamie D. McAleer Professor of Bioethics and director of the Franciscan University Institute of Bioethics, says the event will help the audience “find out how to make the logical case for traditional sexual morality on such issues as non-marital sex, same-sex ‘marriage,’ and the positive case for the sanctity of marriage.”

The panel will include Dr. William E. May, the Michael J. McGivney Professor of Moral Theology at the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Washington, D.C.; Jeanne Monahan, director of the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council; and Dr. Lee.

The event, sponsored by the Franciscan University Institute of Bioethics and the Franciscan University student organization Love Revealed, is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
