The Rise of Corporate Religious Liberty Hardback

Edited by Micah Schwartzman, Chad Flanders, Zoe Robinson

Description

What are the rights of religious institutions? Should those rights extend to for-profit corporations?

Houses of worship have claimed they should be free from anti-discrimination laws in hiring and firing ministers and other employees.

Faith-based institutions, including hospitals and universities, have sought exemptions from requirements to provide contraception.

Now, in a surprising development, large for-profit corporations have succeeded in asserting rights to religious free exercise.

The Rise of Corporate Religious Liberty explores this "corporate" turn in law and religion.

Drawing on a broad range perspectives, this book examines the idea of "freedom of the church," the rights of for-profit corporations, and the implications of the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Burwell v.

Hobby Lobby for debates on anti-discrimination law, same-sex marriage, health care, and religious freedom.
