Elizabeth Kiester, Ph.D.: “For the Bible Tells Me So: Understanding the Impact of Religious Beliefs and State Policy Attitudes Towards LGBTQ Individuals”

This is an Experience Event!

Dr. Kiester will be talking about ACRE research she conducted with a former student. What is the role of religious beliefs in shaping attitudes towards LGBTQ individuals? Additionally, what effect might policies have in mitigating or enhancing that effect? Their research suggests that religious beliefs and pro-equality policies act as a mechanism for what we believe and who we know which in turn have an effect on attitude formation.
