Science v. Dogma: Biology Challenges the LDS Paradigm

FREE | SEPT 27, 7 PM

Author and Historian Gregory A. Prince to deliver the 2017 Sterling M. McMurrin Lecture on Religion in Culture.

Until the late 1960s, when the Stonewall Riots in New York City brought LGBT issues into the public square, the consensus among clinicians, scientists, legislators and religious leaders was that homosexuality was either an unfortunate choice that could be unchosen, or a disease that could—and must—be cured.

The “biology paradigm” calls for a reassessment.
