Next Monday, March 24the day before oral arguments in the Hobby Lobby andConestoga Wood Products casesthe Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown University’s Berkley Center will host an event, “Everybody’s Business: The Legal, Economic, and Political Implications of Religious Freedom,” at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. from noon to 5:30 p.m. (RSVP, as there is a buffet lunch at noon.) The keynote of the event will be a conversation between Baylor University’s President Kenneth Starr and Harvard Law School’s Professor Alan Dershowitz, “Beyond Hobby Lobby: What Is at Stake with the HHS Mandate?” Following that conversation, the balance of the afternoon will feature two panels, one on the Hobby Lobby case and its implications and another on the question, “Is Religious Freedom Good for Business and for the Poor?” Each panel features outstanding legal and scholarly experts on religious freedom, with different views represented. It should be a very illuminating afternoon.
We launched the First Things 2023 Year-End Campaign to keep articles like the one you just read free of charge to everyone.
Measured in dollars and cents, this doesn't make sense. But consider who is able to read First Things: pastors and priests, college students and professors, young professionals and families. Last year, we had more than three million unique readers on firstthings.com.
Informing and inspiring these people is why First Things doesn't only think in terms of dollars and cents. And it's why we urgently need your year-end support.
Will you give today?
