D.C. Event on Religious Liberty


At least four of Judge Alito’s most important rulings on religion—ACLU v. Schundler, ACLU v. Township of Wall, and Fraternal Order of Police v. City of Newark, and C.H. v. Oliva—have in common that the attorney who argued and won the case was Kevin “Seamus” Hasson, founder and chairman of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty.

Hasson has just published an excellent book, The Right to Be Wrong: Ending the Culture War Over Religion in America. I am pleased to report that the Ethics and Public Policy Center, the think tank I head, will be hosting an event in D.C. this Wednesday evening, November 30, at which Hasson will discuss his book—and, I suspect, his insights on Judge Alito. To sign up to join Hasson and me at this free event, or for more information, please see here.
