    (When) Can Gossip be Just?

    (When) Can Gossip be Just?

    It is difficult to know when to share information with others, especially when that information damages another person's reputation. The challenge is especially acute for those who work on the Hill, where information is currency. In this talk, Dr. Anderson developed an 'ethics of gossip' that both challenges our tendency toward "loose lips" and guides us toward knowing when and how to share damaging information about third parties.

    The Foundation of Human Trafficking and Current Policy Trends

    The Foundation of Human Trafficking and Current Policy Trends

    From the private to the public sectors, there is consensus that modern slavery exists and that it is wrong; yet around the world, prosecutions, victim identification, and quality victims services are all in decline. It is an urgent problem and demands our attention and action—but how do we solve human trafficking and other human rights issues today? 
    Ambassador John Cotton Richmond joined us for a conversation on modern slavery and current trends. He spoke about why cultivating a deep understanding of inherent human dignity provides common ground and hope for policymakers collaborating across the political aisle in advancing human rights, stopping perpetrators, and protecting victims through thoughtful and wise actions and policies.

    Our civilizational moment: The crisis of the West, the war of the worlds, and the faith required for our time

    Our civilizational moment: The crisis of the West, the war of the worlds, and the faith required for our time

    Western civilization is said to be the most powerful civilization the world has ever seen, because of its truly global impact. But two things are now obvious. The West has dominated the world for the past 500 years, and a mounting chorus of voices are now saying the West is in decline. Not only is the Christian faith at the heart of the understanding of this ‘civilizational moment, but the crisis of the West is the wider context in which we need to understand the present challenges within America.

    Author and Social Critic Os Guinness joined us for a Friday Forum Lecture.

    Child Care: Should the Government Pay for It?

    Child Care: Should the Government Pay for It?

    In light of the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and our ongoing challenge to continue pushing for policies that protect and uphold the lives of mothers and of their born and pre-born children, should Christians all the more support (rightly designed) federal subsidies for child care and preK?
    Stanley Carlson-Thies, founder and senior director of the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance, and Stephanie Summers, CEO of the Center for Public Justice joined us to discuss when and how—if ever—should faith-based organizations accept government support to serve their neighbors?

    To Invent is Divine: How Strong Patent Rights Help Us to Reflect God's Innovative Nature

    To Invent is Divine: How Strong Patent Rights Help Us to Reflect God's Innovative Nature

    U.S companies are the driving force behind global innovation and the advancement of emerging technologies. A deeper understanding of God’s creativity and our roles as image-bearers can help Christians working on Capitol Hill shape policy that will encourage ingenuity and maintain America's technological cutting-edge while protecting intellectual property.
    Phoebe Miles, co-founder of the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention and daughter of the inventor of Gatorade and Dr. James Edwards, former Hill staffer and consultant on intellectual property discussed how the Creation Mandate and Common Grace relate to human innovation and human flourishing.

    Is Our Foreign Policy Good? American Moral Absolutism and the China Challenge

    Is Our Foreign Policy Good? American Moral Absolutism and the China Challenge

    Many Americans frame frictions with China not only as a set of conflicting interests to be managed, but as a decisive battle between Democracy and Autocracy, between Good and Evil. In this formulation, our interests are often equated with the maintenance of our power and our power is viewed in millenarian terms. This tendency is baffling not only to our adversaries, but to our allies as well. Why do we lean on normative language whenever we feel threatened? And how can we make convincing arguments about the threat of Chinese Communist Party governance in a complex, skeptical world that does not view the United States as a moral exemplar and or the last hope of Christendom?

    Robert Daly, Director of the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars joined us to discuss this timely topic.
