Publisher's Description

One of the most respected and influential scholars of religious liberty in our time, Douglas Laycock has argued many crucial religious-liberty cases in the United States Supreme Court. His noteworthy scholarly and popular writings are being collected in five comprehensive volumes under the title Religious Liberty.

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.

Author Bio


Douglas Laycock is Robert E. Scott Distinguished Professor of Law and professor of religious studies at the University of Virginia. In addition to his work as a lawyer, he has written for the New York Times, the Washington Post, and numerous other publications.

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS VOLUMES

Voice of Reason 
"A must for academic and law-school libraries. . . . A treasure trove of information for those who teach or practice church-state law." 

Kim Colby 
— Center for Law and Religious Freedom
"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."
