Description: What is meant by a “Just War?” How does Church teaching on Just War apply to current global conflicts? We’ll talk about it with Dr. Patrick Lee
Dr. Patrick Lee
Dr. Lee began teaching philosophy at Franciscan University in 1992. In 2007 he was appointed to direct Franciscan University’s Center for Bioethics. As director, Dr. Lee defends and articulates the Catholic Church’s position on human life issues through his writings, debates, and public speaking engagements. His expertise includes such hot-button bioethical issues as abortion, interrogational torture, embryonic stem-cell research, euthanasia, sexual morality, and same-sex unions. He is the author of over 40 articles and books. His most recent book with Dr. Robert P. George of Princeton University is Conjugal Union: What Marriage is and Why it Matters (2014). Recent articles include “Embryonic Issues,” “Why Marriage Is Inherently Heterosexual,” and “The Human Embryo from Day 1 to Day 14.” His lectures and public debates include a panel discussion at Princeton University with abortion proponent Dr. Peter Singer on the topic “Is It Morally Right to End Early Human Life?”, a debate on “Same-Sex ‘Marriage’” at Valparaiso University, Indiana, and lectures on “The Immorality of Embryonic Stem Cell Research” at Fordham University, New York, and on “Embryonic Stem Cell Research” at the University of Wisconsin at Wausau.
