July 17, 2015 – Bartlesville, OK

Following the Supreme Court’s recent landmark decision on marriage, Dr. Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, is heading to Washington, D.C.


The implications of Obergefell v. Hodges cover a wide range of religious liberty issues, especially for religious schools and affiliated institutions. In light of this, Dr. Piper, along with other educational leaders, legal experts, and Senator Mike Lee (R – Utah) will be speaking at a live webcast hosted by the Family Research Council. The webcast, “The Court and the Classroom: How the Supreme Court’s Redefinition of Marriage Affects Religious Schools” will take place on July 23 at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

The webcast is another of a series of opportunities Dr. Piper has had to speak about academic freedom and religious liberty after the ruling. He was recently interviewed by the New York Times, NPR’s “The Take Away”, and has appeared in several other publications and radio shows.

Other speakers at the Family Research Council’s event include Travis Weber, Director of the Center for Religious Liberty; Greg Baylor, Senior Counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom; presidents of Union University, Belmont Abbey College, and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; and more.

The webcast is open for registration at frc.org/classroom.
