Clinton School of Public Service (Sturgis Hall)
A leading scholar on constitutional law, the philosophy of law and political philosophy, Princeton University professor Robert George will revisit former New York Governor Mario Cuomo's famous speech on religious faith, ethics and public policy at Notre Dame University 25 years ago. In his speech, "Religious Belief and Public Morality: A Catholic Governor's Perspective,” Cuomo discussed the separation of church and state as it relates to moral issues, particularly legalized abortion. Cuomo argued that his belief in the church’s teachings did not require him to support legislation in favor of those teachings in a pluralistic society.
