Franciscan University of Steubenville’s moral theologian, Dr. Kevin Miller, is well versed in today’s key moral issues including abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, capital punishment, human cloning, and homosexual “marriage,” and other moral issues that sometimes place Catholic values at odds with the popular culture. In addition to his PhD in religious studies from Marquette University, Kevin has a master’s in political science and a bachelor’s in molecular biology—so he is grounded in the political and scientific aspects of these issues, and the Catholic Church’s teachings, all of which he can present in down-to-earth language. Additionally, he is a longtime member of the Board of Directors of the multidisciplinary scholarly association University Faculty for Life.
