John Corvino

Earlier this week  Providence College provost, Hugh Lena, canceled a scheduled talk by John Corvino. chairman of the philosophy department at Wayne State University and an advocate for marriage equality.

However, in a message to the campus that appeared yesterday on GoLocalProv, Lena said that the event is being rescheduled “sometime in the spring semester” as a debate between Corvino and Sherif Girgis.

Girgis, you may recall, is a Robby George protege and one of the authors, along with Ryan Anderson, of a book that was designed and timed to influence the Supreme Court in the Prop 8 and Windsor cases.
