Taking Rites Seriously: Law, Politics, and the Reasonableness of Faith

Session 6
to
Advanced Course

In this session we will critically examine how and why courts, legal scholars, and other powerful actors in public life often describe the conservative positions on social issues as “religious” and the liberal ones as “secular,” implying that only the latter can be deliverances of “reason.” We will pay particular attention to controversies concerning the sanctity of human life, marriage, religious liberty, and the place of God in public life.
