First Presbyterian offers

Law, religion discussion

First Presbyterian Church, 213 Whittington Ave., will hold a "pop-up" discussion on law and religion on Saturday, Oct. 22, in the church's Fellowship Hall.

The speaker will be the Rev. Mark Clark, a retired PC (USA) pastor and lawyer. "He will present and discuss some of the hottest religious issues being debated in today's news," a news release said. Clark teaches several classes at the UALR Bowen School of Law, including Law & Religion. He is married to the Rev. Carol Clark, who currently serves on the staff of the Presbytery of Arkansas.

Using video, slides and other media, Clark will "lay out the issues in each case, invite you to discuss how you would decide, and then describe how the courts actually ruled and why."

"Topics for discussion will include 'Can a baker be forced to sell a wedding cake to a gay couple when his religious views are opposed to marriage between same sex,' or, 'Can a public school football coach be fired for praying on the 50-yard line after each home game?'," the release said.

The public is welcome to attend. A snack lunch will follow the event for guests who make reservations by noon Thursday by calling the church at 501-624-5646.
