GENDER THEORY: AN INTRODUCTION
Sunday, August 6, 2017
Speaker: Fr. Robert Gahl, associate professor of ethics, Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome
“Gender ideology is threatening the freedom of religious expression, religious belief, and the freedom of the Church as an institution in many places, and in the places where it’s not being threatened, it probably will be threatened very shortly," said Fr. Robert Gahl, associate professor of ethics at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome, Italy.
Learning the basics of gender theory will be essential to our defending our religious freedom and the basic values of our culture. Join us this Sunday for this special opportunity to learn from an expert.
The afternoon will begin with a meditation at 2:00 PM, followed by the class at 2:30 PM. Refreshments will be served after, for which a small contribution is always appreciated. Open to all women.
