Re: Nomi Stolzenberg

Nomi Stolzenberg wrote an op-ed arguing that the idea of religious freedom is being used to undermine other rights. Three recent Supreme Court cases in particular have confused the idea of religious liberty and the separation between church and state. "Using the democratic process to resolve moral and policy disagreements is not discrimination, so long as every group gets due consideration," she writes.
