Religious freedom will be topic at Lifetree Cafe

Dilemmas surrounding the right to religious freedom will be explored at noon and 7 p.m. on Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe.

The program, titled “Religious Freedom: Standing Up for What You Believe,” features a filmed interview with former White House attorney and Air Force officer Michael Weinstein, who believes the U.S. military is under attack by a group that threatens both morale and battle-readiness: Christian fundamentalists.

“What do you do when you’re forced to convert to Christianity or face incredible scrutiny during basic training?” Weinstein asks. “I went to the Academy to see what was occurring and then realized there was a much bigger problem.”

During the program Lifetree participants will have the opportunity share their opinions on recent situations in which religious freedom was threatened.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Cafe is located at Cana, 18 S. Third St.

Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to the Rev. Barbara Huisman at 302-8036.
