Religious Freedom and Discrimination: America Faces the Law

John Hawthorne:

I’ll state my conclusion up front and then circle back to explain how I got here. Here goes:

In an increasingly pluralistic culture, claims of religious freedom will conflict directly with protections against discrimination. When that conflict occurs, the discrimination issues will win. This is the case because there is a conflict between the 1st and 14th Amendments to the Constitution. This means that way the forward for evangelicals in a diverse culture is not to rely on claims of religious freedom but to shift our argument to concerns about equal protection under the law.
