Religious liberty belongs to everyone, not just the religious right

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..." The First Amendment to the Constitution begins with this foundational defense of individual conscience against the edicts of religious institutions backed by the coercive power of government. We may have different views of how we can protect religious liberty for the sake of everyone, but until recently there has been a rough consensus that religious liberty centers primarily on maintaining the rights of individuals."
