FFRF on the Road (May 2019)

Vol. 36 No. 04 May 2019
FFRF Associate Counsel Sam Grover spoke to a group of about 70 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of La Crosse, Wis., on April 7 on the topic of “Civil Rights in the Age of Religious Refusal.” “I thought it might be a challenge to convince a room of people who self-identify as religious that an expansion of ‘religious freedom’ rights would be a bad thing,” Grover said. “But they were quite receptive to the idea that as people who care about social justice and civil rights, they must reject the Religious Right’s attempts to drastically expand ‘religious freedom’ to protect actions in addition to beliefs.”
