Taking Liberties

A concise and lucid explanation of what religious freedom is and isn'tIncreasingly, conservative religious groups are using religious liberty as a sword to lash out at others. In this forcefully argued defense of the separation of church and state, Robert Boston makes it clear that the religious freedom guaranteed in the First Amendment is an individual right, the right of personal conscience, not a license allowing religious organizations to discriminate against and control others. The book examines the controversy over birth control, same-sex marriage, religion in public schools, the intersection of faith and politics, and the ",war on Christmas,", among other topics.Boston concludes with a series of recommendations for resolving clashes between religious liberty claims and individual rights.
