Beltway Boys tackle Church and State

Beltway Boys tackle Church and State

By SOP newswire

Grove City, PA-- What can churches tell their congregants about values voting, the issues of the day, and how church and state can work together - and should they work together? Where does the nexus of religion and politics lie?

Pennsylvania and its April 22nd primary are the focus of the political world. In a presidential election year, church-state issues receive heightened scrutiny and on April 10 & 11 Pennsylvania's Grove City College will host one of the most important conferences of the year - "Church & State 2008" - featuring some of the nation's leading commentators and scholars. The conference will take a look at presidential candidates, where values voters will turn in 2008 and will wrestle with contemporary and historical church-state issues.

Fox News' Beltway Boys, Fred Barnes and Mort Kondracke, are featured speakers addressing faith in the public square along with Billy Graham biographer ("The Preacher and the Presidents") Michael Duffy of Time Magazine, nationally syndicated radio host Michael Medved, Naomi Schaefer Riley of the Wall Street Journal, Ethics and Public Policy Center VP Michael Cromartie, Grove City's Paul Kengor ("God and Ronald Reagan") and Gary Smith ("Faith and the Presidency") and many others. Each attendee receives a bound volume of 15 papers written by the conference participants. High school students can attend a one-day program designed just for them.

Affordable registration options range from $15 to $150. To learn more and to RSVP, visit or call Mrs. Brenda Vinton at 724.450.1541. This is the fourth annual conference sponsored by The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College.
