Boardman Lecture XXXII. Jane Marie Pinzino and Carol A. Scheppard, editors.


Stephen L. Carter, author of The Culture of Disbelief: How American Law and Politics Trivialize Religious Devotion, speaks about some of the same topics covered in his book: whether American leaders and intellectuals take religion seriously, and whether these same leaders take a stand on the importance of religion and how religion functions in the lives of the many Americans who are believers. His approach in this lecture is that of religious affiliation and belief in the Supreme Court confirmation process.
