Tishman Auditorium at NYU, New York, NY

Presented by CFI–NYC.

What makes a person moral? Which principles determine whether an action is right or wrong? Which virtues are worth striving for? The Catholic and secular worldviews have long been in conflict over these questions. Yet where exactly do they diverge? And do they have anything in common?

To address these questions, the Center for Inquiry in New York City presents a forum featuring its executive director, Michael De Dora, and Father Jonathan Morris, an author and Fox News contributor. The event will be hosted and moderated by journalist Chris Jansing of "Jansing and Company" on MSNBC. The two speakers will make opening statements, then sit down with Jansing for a conversation about the disagreements and potential overlap between their religious and nonreligious moral outlooks. An audience Q&A session will follow.

General public admission is $5 at the door. Students (with a college ID) and paid CFI members get in free. Photo ID is required for everyone to enter the building.
