Freedom FROM Religion or Freedom FOR Religion explores religious freedom in the Western World. Events from Europe, Colonial and Revolutionary America, and America in the 19th century all provide insight for the current discussion regarding the place of religion in America. A constant topic of discussion even before the founding of America, church-state separation continues to provoke strong reactions. Does the doctrine of church-state separation protect liberty of conscience? Does it provide freedom for religion or freedom from religion? During eight Sundays, key vignettes from history and their role in shaping America will be considered in attempting to answer these questions.
