Lifetree to examine religious freedom

Lifetree Cafe will explore religious freedom and civil rights at noon and 7 p.m. Tuesday at Cana, 18 S. Third St.

The program, titled “Religious Freedom: Standing Up for What You Believe,” features a filmed interview with former White House attorney and Air Force officer Michael Weinstein, who believes the U.S. military is under attack by a group that threatens both morale and battle-readiness: Christian fundamentalists.

“People need to understand that their fundamentalist Christian rights will never trample the civil rights of their American brothers and sisters,” said Weinstein.

“Some say that religious freedom is under attack in this country,” said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. “We’ll examine the state of religious freedom in America and how it is changing.”

The discussion is at noon and again at 7 p.m. at 18 S. Third St.

Refreshments will be served.
