POLITICAL CORRECTNESS DISCUSSED AT LIFETREE CAFÉ Where to draw the line between political correctness and free speech will be examined at Lifetree Café on Wednesday at 7:00pm in the café and Thursday at 12:30pm in the Pool House at Candlewood. The program—titled “Political Correctness: Where Do You Draw the Line?”—includes a filmed interview with former Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt, who made national headlines after disobeying a direct order to stop praying “in Jesus’ name” while in uniform outside a sanctioned divine service. During the episode, Lifetree participants will be given the chance to share their own opinions and experiences with political correctness.

Please plan to attend. A rendering and cost estimates are available. See the bulletin board.
