    Robert P. George, "Religious Liberty and the Rights of Conscience."

    Robert P. George, "Religious Liberty and the Rights of Conscience."

    At the heart of several significant public policy disputes today are issues of religious freedom and the rights of conscience. It is not, however, that some Americans profess belief in liberty and conscience and others do not. Rather, it is that Americans are divided about the meaning of freedom and conscience and what it means to respect these principles.

    Professor George will explore competing understandings of religious freedom and the rights of conscience and present an argument on their bearing on contemporary issues.
