Law and Religion

Blogpost on ‘Freedom of associations’

A blogpost by Professor C. Scott Pryor of Regent University School of Law on the above topic generously makes mention of my recent, co-authored article on ‘The State, Civil Society and Religious Freedom’.

From the blogpost:

‘Rights of associations–churches, families, organizations, etc.– are an increasingly important concept as the depth of legal penetration by modern States grows ever greater. The “contraceptive mandate” of the recent health care law is an example of this problem in America: Will associations, outside a narrow understanding of “religious” ones, be required to provide health insurance coverage inconsistent with their formative understandings?’
