ST. GEORGE – Gov. Michael O. Leavitt will speak on “Religious Freedom and the Practice Thereof” during a free program in the Cox Auditorium at Dixie State University on Sunday at 6 p.m.
DSU President Stephen Nadauld will introduce Leavitt, who will present a very timely and thought-provoking talk discussing the situation of religion and religious freedoms in the United States today:
- What religious freedom is, what people think it is and what it should be
- Religion as a critical element in the functioning of democracy
- Americans have believed they were accountable to God and therefore conducted themselves voluntarily with God’s laws
Among the many roles Leavitt has filled are Utah governor for three terms from 1993-2003 and served on President George W. Bush’s Cabinet.
“Raging Red” of DSU will be singing “Amazing Grace” to begin the program.

The St. George Interfaith Council is sponsoring this special evening in conjunction with Dixie State University and the Public Affairs Council of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
