With the Supreme Court ruling making same-sex marriage the law of the land, opponents of that decision are looking to religious liberty as the next forum for debate. But the first amendment’s ‘free exercise of religion’ has much deeper roots, and broader implications than gay rights, from Muslim headscarves to contraception insurance coverage.


  • Sarah Pulliam Bailey – reporter for the Washington Post on the intersections of religion and social, cultural, and political issues.
  • Bryan McCormack ­– executive director of NH Cornerstone, a nonprofit advocacy group which supports religious freedom.
  • Gilles Bissonnette­ legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire, which promotes individual rights.
