FRCC Professor to Illustrate Complex Relationship between Religion, Violence

Catlyn Keenan, professor of philosophy and women’s studies at Front Range Community College’s Boulder County Campus, will give a presentation titled Religion and Violence Sept. 26 at the Longmont Public Library.

Her presentation is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the library’s meeting rooms. Attendees can use the west side entrance.

“Some people argue that religion has been used throughout history as a motivation for war and terrorism,” Keenan says. “Others argue that religion is essentially peaceful and used by violent people to justify war. I plan to use examples from recent history to illustrate the complex relationship between religion and violence.”

The presentation will contain some graphic content. Admission is free.
