PRLog - Nov. 9, 2012 - HUNTINGTON, N.Y. -- Freedom of religion is one of America’s founding principles and the subject of the latest program in the broadcast series, Exploring Critical Issues. Conceived and hosted by Adelphi University (http://www.adelphi.edu/)
Religious Liberty Panelists
“Since the Pilgrims came to our shores, America has upheld religious liberty – that every individual has the right to practice his or her own beliefs without restricting that freedom for others,” said Dr. Scott. “Our program explores how this founding principle is balanced against today’s complex public policies.”
Joining Dr. Scott for this look at humanity’s pursuit of religious liberty in America and around the world, are guests: Dr. Hussein Rashid, Associate Editor, Religious Dispatches; The Reverend Lynn Sullivan, Associate Minister, Garden City Community Church; Dr. Richard Dina, Senior Consultant, Adelphi University’s Center for Nonprofit Leadership; and Rabbi Dr. Barry Dov Schwartz, Chaplain, Nassau County Police Department, Mercy Medical Center and Adelphi University.
“Religious Liberty” airs over two weeks this November in New York and Connecticut on Cablevision 29 (Long Island) and 137 (CT and NY area outside of Long Island), FiOS 296 (NY and Fairfield, CT), and streaming simultaneously at www.telecaretv.org on airdates and times as follows:
Sundays, November 18 and November 25 at 10:00 PM
Sundays November 25 and December 2 at 7:00 AM
Wednesdays, November 21 and November 28 at 10:30 PM
Thursdays, November 22 and November 29 at 1:30 PM
Seen by over seven million households, Exploring Critical Issues has earned three Telly Awards, the cable equivalent of the Emmy.
As the engaged University, Adelphi is proud to sponsor Exploring Critical Issues to provide scholars, advocates, and other distinguished guests with a forum in which to explore critical local, regional, national, and global topics, such as the environment, health, business, the arts, politics, law, and government regulations.
