Book description

Freedom's Edge takes the reader directly into the heart of the debate over the relationship between religious freedom and LGBT and reproductive rights. The book explains these complex areas of law, and what is at stake in the battle to protect each of these rights. The book argues that religious freedom and sexual freedom share some common elements and that in most contexts it is possible to protect both. Freedom's Edge explains why this is so, and provides a roadmap for finding common ground and maximizing freedoms on both sides. The book will enable anyone with an interest in these issues to understand what the law actually teaches us about religious freedom, sexual freedom, and how they interact. This is important because what is often argued by partisans on both sides distorts the legal and cultural stakes, and diminishes the possibility of compromise.

Reviews

'Religious freedom and sexual freedom are not perennial enemies that must vanquish the other in order to flourish, Frank Ravitch shows. They are two of many fundamental freedoms that can coexist in a democratic society committed to justice and liberty for all. This crisply written expert guide uses compelling case studies and comprehensive legal analysis to coax radical culture warriors away from their legal brinkmanship and toward a more humane and enduring modus vivendi.'

John Witte, Jr - Emory University
