Religious Freedom: A Civil-Rights Issue | NRO

Kathryn Jean Lopez at NRO: The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights recently held hearings on and took comments about religious freedom in the U.S. What made it a commission priority? How is religious freedom a civil-rights issue today? . . . There were also many groups and institutions that submitted comments, including the Becket Fund, the American Center for Law and Justice, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Cru (perhaps better known as Campus Crusade for Christ), Alliance Defending Freedom, the Heritage Foundation, the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, the Bioethics Defense Fund, Belmont Abbey College, Franciscan University of Steubenville, the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance, and Kairos.
