Mark Chancey, a widely published expert on constitutional, political, and academic issues related to the study of religion in public schools, will give a presentation at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, at Carthage. His talk, titled “Religious Literacy, Religious Liberty, and the Bible in American Public Schools,” will be held in the Todd Wehr Center at Carthage, 2001 Alford Park Drive. The event is free to attend and open to the public, with no advance registration required. Prof. Chancey, a professor of religious studies at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, is writing a book on the topic. His four reports for the religious liberty advocacy group Texas Freedom Network Education Fund suggested that some academic Bible courses unconstitutionally privilege particular religious views over others.
