OKWU KEATING CENTER TO HOST LIBERTY SYMPOSIUM
Leading up to the celebration of Constitution Day, Oklahoma Wesleyan’s Keating Center for Capitalism, Free Enterprise, and Constitutional Liberty is hosting their first-ever Liberty Symposium. The symposium, held from September 15-17, will bring in national leaders to speak on key constitutional issues. This year’s focus will be on Religious Liberty. “Concern for religious liberty is not alarmist thinking,” says Dr. Everett Piper, OKWU President, “It is rational listening.”
The week’s events include a Tuesday evening dinner with Kelly Monroe Kullberg, Founder and Board Member of the Veritas Forum, speaking on “Religious Liberty in the University.” Wednesday features a “brown bag” lunch and panel discussion at the OKWU Keating Center. Panelists Greg Baylor of Alliance Defending Freedom, Leah Farish-a civil rights attorney, Dr. Piper, and Kelly Monroe Kullberg will discuss Religious Liberty and Christian Organizations.
The 2015 Liberty Symposium will conclude with a Constitution Day celebration-the Foster Bonanza with Todd Starnes, columnist, and radio/TV commentator with Fox News. The Bonanza features an evening on the beautiful Foster family ranch originally built by H.V. Foster. Guests can enjoy skeet shooting contests, yard games, and dinner, while Starnes shares his talk, “What Happened to My Country.”
