“No Human Right to Sodomy: The Christian Right and SOGI Human Rights”
In recent years, the US government and the US Christian conservative movement have been at odds over sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) human rights. while US policy supports SOGI human rights, the Christian Right opposes these human rights and works to undermine their institutionalization around the world. In this talk, Professor Burack examines the Christian Right case against SOGI human rights, as well as some of its hidden dimensions and internal contradictions.
This event is co-sponsored, Law, Identity, and Culture, John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics and the Workshop in Political, Ethics and Society in the Department of Political Sciences.
