Religious Liberty: It's Not Just For the Christian Right

Religious liberty is a central issue of our time. The Christian Right, (having lost on matters of abortion rights and marriage equality in the courts) is increasingly reframing its agenda in terms of religious liberty -- seeking exemptions from the law by stretching and manipulating the meaning of religious liberty in order to legalize discrimination. This workshop aims to equip organizers, activists, journalists, and academics with a basic knowledge of what religious liberty is and isn't, how the Christian Right is employing the term, and how to we need to respond. This interactive session seeks to provide a framework for building the necessary knowledge and skills to confront this political, intellectual, and theological challenge.
