Can Religious Freedom Survive Same-Sex Marriage? | Matthew J. Franck at First Things

    Matthew J. Franck at First Things: Zoll: In your view, is there any value for faith groups to pursuing religious exemptions as a stand-alone effort–meaning independent from defending marriage? Franck: In my view, such efforts are a rearguard action retreating from a field one has surrendered. But we have not lost the fight for the truth about marriage, and surrendering the field is premature. I continue to hope that it will never finally be necessary, and I work to make that hope a reality.
