Description: The idea of legislating morality can seem risky - how do we know who it is who does the legislating? But it is appropriate, required, and inevitable—and it’s dangerous to think otherwise. We must be very careful about what morality we legislate, but we the people should be the ones doing it. We talk with Jay Bruce.
Dr Jay Bruce is associate professor of philosophy at John Brown University. He writes and thinks at the intersection of philosophy, theoogy, politics and economics. He is the author of Rights in the law: The Importance of God's Free Choices in the Thought of Francis Turretin and is working on a new book exploring Christianity and equality. He serves as assistant pastor at Covenant Church.
