From Indiana to Georgia and North Carolina, to right here in Missouri, religious freedom has been at the center of legislation presented amidst much state and nationwide controversy and discussion around issues of LGBT discrimination. Despite having recently been shut down in Missouri, this type of legislation will likely resurface and goes beyond the present. Associate Professor Chad Flanders joins us for this episode to explain religious freedom, the Constitution and the relationship to LGBT issues. Flanders is a constitutional law professor and a scholar of religion and the First Amendment.
