Religious Freedom and the American Founding: The Natural Right of Religious Liberty, the Original Meanings of the Religion Clauses, and Our 'First Freedom' Today

Research and writing leading to publication of a book on the First Amendment's Free Exercise Clause and the American founders’ views on religious liberty.

I propose to complete a book titled "Religious Freedom & The American Founding: The Natural Right of Religious Liberty, The Original Meanings of the Religion Clauses, and Our 'First Freedom' Today." The book will: (1) articulate the founders' natural rights political philosophy of religious liberty; (2) explain what we can and cannot determine about original meanings of the First Amendment Religion Clause, thereby revealing the limitations, complications, and difficulties of church-state originalism; and (3) construct a natural rights approach to the First Amendment's Religion Clauses.
