What are the rights of religious institutions? Should those rights extend to for-profit corporations? Houses of worship have claimed they should be free from anti-discrimination laws in hiring and firing ministers and other employees. Faith-based institutions, including hospitals anduniversities, have sought exemptions from requirements to provide contraception. Now, in a surprising development, large for-profit corporations have succeeded in asserting rights to religious free exercise. The Rise of Corporate Religious Liberty explores this "corporate" turn in law and religion.Drawing on a broad range perspectives, this book examines the idea of "freedom of the church," the rights of for-profit corporations, and the implications of the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby for debates on anti-discrimination law, same-sex marriage, health care, andreligious freedom.

Editorial Reviews

"The important questions addressed in this book are deeply challenging and greatly controversial. The range of views defended by the contributors to this volume-contributors who are among this generation's most respected scholars of religious freedom-is impressively broad. Moreover, the depthof discernment evident throughout the book is truly remarkable. Essential reading for anyone who cares about the state of religious freedom in the United States today." --Michael J. Perry, Robert W. Woodruff Professor of Law, Emory University
