Frank Talk: Religious Liberty in America: How do we Set Limits on Free Exercise?

Free, thought-provoking, expert-facilitated discussions on important issues facing our communities produced in partnership with Arizona Humanities and the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records.

Religious Liberty in America: How do we Set Limits on Free Exercise?

Steve Kilar, Arizona State University, Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution dictates that Congress “shall make no law … prohibiting the free exercise” of religion. In Arizona, we’ve been confronted with this question in recent years because of public debates over women’s reproductive rights and proposals to protect people from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. But what happens when a religious belief compels the believer to commit acts of violence or deny a certain group of people business services? How do we decide what actions based on religious belief are prohibited under the law? Join us for a FRANK Talk about the law and religious practice.
