Istituto Acton organized a private luncheon seminar with Vatican journalists and local university professors for a seminar with Prof. David Forte, a noted legal scholar who has served as chief U.S. counsel to the United Nations for his expert advice on worldwide religious persecution and Islamic extremism. The discussion centered on the ways in which Christian and Islam intellectuals and lawmakers have regarded human freedom, as well as the role in which reason and personal responsibility play in moral choice and civil legislation. Further discussion was devoted to the degrees in which freedom was controlled or protected by legislation in societies with a clear Christian or Islamic cultural foundation.
