P-07 Religious Liberty and Conflict

Start Date

Description

Since the inception of the United States, religious freedom has been something that Americans have held in the highest reverence. Concurrently, with a plurality of faiths and non-faith, conflict has continually transpired between secular society and personal faith. At times, these conflicts are adjudicated in the courtroom and not in the church sanctuary. The deciding rational in the courts has been informed by various factors as the arguments of conflicting parties have evolved over time. The purpose of this research is to help inform the discourse of religious liberty by charting both legal arguments and public opinion in their development over time.
