The First Amendment's free exercise clause is one of the most important lines in the U.S. Constitution that, when coupled with the establishment clause, constitutes the foundation of religious freedom in the United States.
Throughout U.S. history, the application of the clause has changed dramatically, and for the past 29 years, these changes have had profound effects on the outcomes of a multitude of cases surrounding free exercise of religion.
On this episode, Steven Collis discusses the history of free exercise in the United States alongside current cases that illustrate its evolution over time.
