In Their Own Words

"Why does a liberal democracy protect the right not just to religious belief, but to religious practice? Once you discern the best case for protecting that right, another question arises: Should a liberal democracy protect the right to moral practice as well? And if we have the right to moral freedom, what implications might that suggest with respect to same-sex marriage?"
