Browning, speaking on "Christianity and the Present Crisis," will deliver the second in a series of informal lectures, sponsored by the Philosophy Department, tonight at 8 o'clock in the main lounge of Gra ham Memorial. The talk will deal with the crisis Christianity faces at the present time; a crisis brought about by forces "which seek to extend their political power, a power which they use to pre vent religious education and free com munion between persons." Browning contends that fighting will not estab lish Christianity, but one can help to overthrow the forces suppressing Christianity. It is important, Browning holds, to puncture the delusion that ours is a Christian society. In his talk, he will discuss the question of "how a culture cannot be neutral with respect to its foundations, and yet how a democratic state aims to be neutral with respect to religions within its domain." This quarter's topic, "A Fighting Faith," is part of the general sub ject, "Restoring Order," sponsored by the Philosophy Department and local Civilian Morale Center, is being dis cussed in a series of lectures, each quarter.
