Praise for the Print Edition

Any person who cares about religious liberty in America (and we should all be greatly concerned about its increasingly fragile condition) needs to read Douglas Laycock. Anyone who wants to understand the religious liberty battles being fought in today’s legislatures, courts, culture, and media will be enlightened by reading even one of the articles in this book... These writings are lucid and compelling, completely accessible to every reader—lawyer or not, academic or not, religious or not. Doug has the gift for taking complex ideas and making them elegantly simple but never simplistic.

—Kim Colby, Senior Legal Counsel, Center for Law & Religious Freedom

Product Details

Individual Titles

Religious Liberty, Volume 3: Religious Freedom Restoration Acts, Same-Sex Marriage Legislation, and the Culture Wars

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This third volume presents a documentary history of efforts to enact and implement state and federal Religious Freedom Restoration Acts, to include religious-liberty protections in same-sex marriage legislation, and to protect the rights of both sides in the culture wars. It contains articles in scholarly journals, op-eds for popular audiences, and oral and written arguments.

Religious Liberty, Volume 4: Federal Legislation after the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, with More on the Culture Wars

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This fourth volume presents a documentary history of the effort to replace the Religious Freedom Restoration Act with the Religious Liberty Protection Act, an effort that failed but led to narrower legislation protecting churches from hostile zoning and protecting the religious rights of prisoners. Documenting culture-war battles over religious liberty and abortion, contraception, and same-sex marriage, this volume includes journal articles, testimony to Congress, shorter popular writings, and letters to such political figures as Congressman Bobby Scott and President Barack Obama.

Religious Liberty, Volume 5: The Free Speech and Establishment Clauses

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this final volume Laycock documents the use of the Constitution’s Free Speech Clause and Establishment Clause in legal briefs, scholarly and popular articles, House testimonies, and written debates. These two clauses have been vitally important in religious-liberty cases concerning religious speech in schools, politics, and the workplace, government funding of religious schools and social services, and the meaning of separation of church and state.
