October 13, 2015 – Faith & Society: Freedom of Religion
Season 8, Episode 15
God said it, I believe it, and that settles it for me! But wait, what about the Supreme Court? On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and freedom of religion. In this final of our series saluting the United States Constitution we’ll talk about the constitutional guarantees regarding freedom of religion. Religion enjoys a high level of protection under the US Constitution, but some would argue, “not enough!” When someone claims that what God is calling them to do supersedes the law of the land, what then? Just how far does religious freedom go? How are these thorny issues determined by the Supreme Court? And what does faith have to say about all of it? We’re joined again by attorney Scott Rost (pictured above right) who will help us unpack this sometimes complicated issue of religious freedom. Freedom of Religion, rights and limits; that conversation is available here and now on this podcast of Friends Talking Faith.
