- Americans today are struggling with conflicts between religious freedom and equality law. Although such tensions are not new, they are newly vibrant and visible, partly because of egalitarian advances on issues such as LGBT rights and women's reproductive freedom. Those advances have run up against claims by religious traditionalists such as Kim Davis, the county clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and Hobby Lobby, the business corporation that won the right to deny contraception coverage to its employees. Religious Freedom in an Egalitarian Age argues that such conflicts can be resolved without irrationality or arbitrariness. The book provides a method for thinking through problems of religion and equality in a reasoned way and recommends solutions in the areas of employment, public accommodations, government officials, and public funding.--
