Religious Freedom in Contemporary America

Tuesday, we’re broadcasting our conversation from a conference on religious liberty hosted by Claremont Graduate University over the weekend. Doug was joined by guests to tackle questions at the heart of the debate over the role of religion in the public square: what fears are driving both sides? What does the constitution guarantee? What does that mean in the public and private arenas? And finally, how do we find common ground for discussing faith and governance in a fractured society?


Thanks to Patrick Mason and the Religion Department of Claremont Graduate University. Their conference, March 25 and 26, was called Religious Freedom in the 21st Century.
