Yesterday a subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee convened a hearing on “The State of Religious Liberty in America.” It was supposed to be yet another installment in a long-running series: opponents of LGBTQ equality and reproductive rights seek to promote discrimination under the guise of religious freedom.
The Religious Right and its allies are nothing if not persistent. They’re also not very original.
Today, a subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee is discussing a proposed constitutional amendment dealing with parental rights.
The New York Times reported yesterday that President Barack Obama met privately with Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan at the White House last week in order to discuss, at least in part, religious liberty in America. This was their second meeting.
It seems that some Republicans in the House of Representatives are awfully worried about government infringing on the liberties of the Religious Right, so the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution has called for a hearing today on “The State of Religious Liberty in the United States.”
