Join us for Edward Whelan and Prof. James Sonne speaking on Religious Liberty in the New Millennium
One of the signature achievements of the Obama administration, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), has drawn almost as much attention for its impact on religious liberty as it has on other grounds. And this increased concern over the religious freedoms Americans have historically held dear is not limited to health-care reform. As government has expanded into ever more areas of public and private life, questions over religion and its status in law have once again become central to the public discourse. Will the second Obama Administration be characterized by increasing hostility for religious liberties, or is there hope for common ground?
