Religious Liberty and the Culture Wars

Douglas Laycock

A talk by Douglas Laycock, Robert E. Scott Distinguished Professor of Law and Professor of Religious Studies at University of Virginia

One of the nation's leading constitutional scholars, Douglas Laycock, who has been on the front lines of some of the great constitutional battles of our day, discusses the Supreme Court arguments on gay marriage and their implications for the concerns of religious freedom. Laycock is in favor of gay marriage; supported the Hobby Lobby decision of the Supreme Court; and supports the accommodation offered by the Obama Administration to religious nonprofits regarding the contraceptive requirements of federal health law (an accommodation that many religious nonprofits have rejected).
