Seamus Hasson’s The Right to Be Wrong


If you’re trying to sort your way through the current controversies over religious liberty in America, I’d strongly recommend that you read Kevin Seamus Hasson’s clear and concise book, The Right to Be Wrong: Ending the Culture War over Religion in America. First published in 2005, The Right to Be Wrong is being released today in a paperback version (with a new afterword).

Seamus, who is both a friend and a hero of mine, is the founder of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty and has devoted his life’s work to defending the religious liberty of people of all faiths. His book draws on a series of stories (some involving Becket Fund clients) to make the case for broad respect for the religious liberty of other persons, even — or, rather, especially — when we believe their beliefs to be deeply wrong.
