St. Louis, MO,
Tuesday, December 4, 2012
Renowned journalist and author George Will speaks before an audience at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, on the role of religion in U.S. politics.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist speaks at the university’s Graham Chapel, giving the keynote address on religious beliefs of some of America’s founders and presidents.
In a speech titled “Religion and Politics in the First Modern Nation,” Will's remarks ranged from the preamble to the Declaration of Independence to the government as an evolving principle. He continues to argue that government should grant leaders the required powers they need to properly benefit the changing nation. Introductory remarks were made by former Senator (R-MO) and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Danforth.
