Please Note:
A membership is required to enroll in this course.

Course Description:

The First Amendment secures our right to the free exercise of religion, yet it also prohibits a government establishment of religion. But when does accommodation of religion in government functions become so pervasive that it becomes an unconstitutional establishment of religion? And what about freedom from religion, our right not to believe in God or worship? Join us as we explore the current state of constitutional freedom of religion and the questions and gray areas that exist between separation and accommodation.
