Summary: "...why is religion singled out for preferential treatment in both law and public discourse?...[the author] argues that the reasons have nothing to do with religion, and that Western democracies are wrong to single out religious liberty for special legal protections...offers insights into what makes a claim of conscience distinctively 'religious' and draws on a wealth of examples from America, Europe, and elsewhere to highlight the important issues at stake."--Book jacket.
