A Call for Civility, Public Discourse, and Consistency


There has been a great deal written here about the current issues of religious liberty and public debate. Earlier this month John DeGioia, President of Georgetown University, the oldest Catholic University in the United States, issued a call for civility and public discourse which may be of interest.

Along those lines, as well as Professor Garnett's earlier discussion of bigotry and civil discourse, this piece appeared in the Washington Post to discuss the uneven response to misogynistic comments….depending on who is the target. Both pieces may offer some food for thought on the state in which we find ourselves regarding our national dialog about important issues.
