September 10, 2015

CLGS and the ACLU are partnering with national organizations to address the ways in which the concept of religious liberty is being used to further discrimination in the case of Religious Freedom Restoration Act legislation. We are working to develop and amplify an accurate and theologically based perspective of what religious liberty is and how it should be used, including the case for why religious liberty should not be used as a license to discriminate.
