Dobie Center, 2021 Guadalupe St. Austin, TX 78705
Join Drs. DeHart and Stuart for a stirring four-part conversation about the status of religious liberty in America.
The first freedom enshrined in the Bill of Rights is religious liberty. It seems simple enough, but as religion crosses paths with other rights claims, new conflicts are popping up. What is the origin of religious liberty? Is it an individual right only? Does it apply to beliefs or actions? What has the Supreme Court said? These and more questions will be answered in just four short sessions on the first, and perhaps most important, freedom.
