2017 Constitutional Symposium on Religious Liberty

Douglas LaycockOn April 6, 2017, the Center for Constitutional Studies hosted a conference regarding religious liberty. Scholars and public advocates representing a wide range of views participated on three panels: the first dealt with the issue of exemptions from general laws, including non-discrimination laws, on the ground of religious conscience; the second dealt with the establishment clause and school prayer; and the third examined political engagement by churches and religious leaders. The winners of the Dr. G. Kevin Jones Religious Liberty Essay Contest also presented their winning essays. The academic panels may be accessed through the Center’s video library. A highlight of the conference was the luncheon keynote address by Professor Douglas Laycock, this year’s recipient of the Center’s Friend of the Bill of Rights and Religious Liberty. MORE >
