Taking Liberties: Why Religious Freedom Doesn't Give You the Right to Tell Other People What to Do


A concise and lucid clarification of what spiritual freedom is and isn't.

Increasingly, conservative spiritual teams are utilizing non secular liberty as a sword to lash out at others. during this forcefully argued safety of the separation of church and country, Robert Boston makes it transparent that the non secular freedom assured within the First modification is someone correct, the ideal of private sense of right and wrong, no longer a license permitting non secular businesses to discriminate opposed to and keep an eye on others. The publication examines the talk over contraception, same-sex marriage, faith in public colleges, the intersection of religion and politics, and the "war on Christmas," between different topics.

Boston concludes with a chain of concepts for resolving clashes among spiritual liberty claims and person rights.
