Breaking the Spiral of Silence BannerSpiral of Silence: A social phenomenon where, out of a desire to avoid reprisal or rejection, people go along with what they think is the popular opinion – even if they object to that opinion personally. Instead of voicing their objections, they remain silent.

In cooperation with the Bishops’ ongoing campaign for religious liberty, Credo is pleased to host a showing of the DVD “Breaking the Spiral of Silence” Tuesday, October 2nd at 6 PM at the St. Louis Abbey, followed by a discussion session. Free.
Tuesday, October 2nd from 6:00-9:00. Program begins at 7 PM

Headshot of Robert GeorgeIn the film various Christian leaders discuss topics of life, liberty, marriage and family–and how we need to speak up about them. The DVD features Professor Robert George, author of over a dozen books and numerous published articles, Professor George also drafted The Manhattan Declaration, signed by Catholic, Orthodox and Evangelical leaders, which promises resistance to the point of civil disobedience against any legislation that might implicate their churches or charities in abortion, embryo-destructive research or same-sex marriage.

Professor George will be Credo’s speaker at the Christ the King Forum this coming November. Click here to register for the November event. There is no need to register for the DVD Viewing.
