Nationally syndicated talk show host Dennis Prager will be the featured speaker at the “Restoring Our Faith” summit, to be held at the Double Tree Hotel in South Burlington on Oct. 25.
Prager will be joined by about a dozen world-renowned faith leaders, social scientists and physicians, who will speak on restoring American values in sectors including media, culture, medicine and more.
“We will discuss the impact of cultural breakdowns amidst the global pandemic of the past two years and address the critical role of natural marriage and family and the importance of protecting children in a flourishing society,” the Restoring Our Faith event website states.
The summit, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., will address serious cultural breakdowns that occurred during the nation’s pandemic-related shutdown beginning in 2020. Speakers will discuss faith, marriage and values that have been hurt by the response to the pandemic.
“Over the past two years, our country devolved into a state of fear, buckling under tyrannically imposed orders resulting in cultural breakdown, all in the name of science,” the website states. “While our churches and synagogues have been shut down, the secular forces of government, the media, and educational institutions have taken their place. We envision a flourishing society rebuilt by a renewed faith, strong families, and a search for truth in science and government.”
Prager is best known for “The Dennis Prager Show” which plays on nearly 400 affiliates as well as iHeartRadio.com, TuneIn.com, and more. He is founder of Prager University, which is one of the most popular conservative websites. The site boasts a billion page views annually. Prager is also New York Times bestselling author of books ranging in topics from religion and ethics to happiness and biblical theology.
Other High Profile Speakers
“Restoring Our Faith” will host 12 speakers in all. One of them is Dr. Robin Armstrong, who frequently appears on One America News Network and Newsmax television, getting his voice into major media markets including New York City, Las Vegas and Houston. He made headlines when he supported administering hydroxychloroquine to COVID patients which success.
Another speaker will be Dr. Janci Lindsay, who has three decades of experience working in toxicology and immunology. Her biography states “her focus on Covid-19 has been on the molecular pathways that are involved in reproductive harms, cancers and coagulopathies caused by the genetic vaccines and their excipients, as well as understanding the molecular mechanisms behind the various treatments for Covid-19 and other emerging viruses.”
Mary Rice Hasson, the Kate O’Beirne Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, D.C., also will be among the presenters. Hasson co-founded the Person and Identity Project, an initiative that equips parents and faith-based institutions with resources to counter gender ideology and promote the truth about the human person. On her website, PersonAndIdentity.com, Hasson comments on how transgenderism uses coercion to achieve its goals.
“Gender ideology claims to support individual rights but results in social and legal coercion: activists seek to compel others to validate the individual’s desired “gender identity” and force them to accept transgender-identified persons in opposite-sex activities or private spaces (e.g., permitting a male identifying as a girl to compete in girls’ track and to undress in the girls’ locker room).”
The all-day event starts at 8:30 a.m. and requires registration. Some churches and synagogues may get discounted admission. The Restoring Our Faith summit is being hosted by the Vermont Institute for Human Flourishing.
