M Kaemingk
Christian Politics and Muslim Immigration

Millions of Muslims have migrated into the West over the past 50 years. Their arrival has ignited a series of fierce public debates on religious freedom and refugees, tolerance and free speech, headscarves and airports, gender and race, and so much more. With each passing year the debates only seem to become more heated, complex, and fearful.

About CACE

The Center for Applied Christian Ethics (CACE) supports the mission of Wheaton College by promoting and encouraging the formation of moral character and the application of biblical ethics to contemporary moral decisions.

CACE serves Wheaton faculty and students through a portfolio of activities, including ethical training through public forums. An annual theme provides the organizing framework for CACE programming. Themes are selected for their interdisciplinary reach and their contemporary significance.

 

CACE originated from a 1986 Christian College Consortium PEW project entitled 'Ethics Across the Curriculum.' Under the supervision of the Provost at Wheaton College, the Center's activities are coordinated by a part-time faculty director and planned by a Faculty Steering Committee in consultation with college departments.
