OPEN TO CARNEGIE NEW LEADERS
Why do Western democracies single out religion for preferential treatment? For example, why can a religious soup kitchen get an exemption from zoning laws while a secular one cannot? Why are religious obligations that conflict with law accorded special toleration while other obligaitons of consicence are not? Is this morally justifiable?
Brian Leiter is Karl N. Llewellyn Professor of Jurisprudence and director of the Center for Law, Philosophy, and Human Values at the University of Chicago Law School. He is the author of Naturalizing Jurisprudence and Nietzsche on Morality and the co-editor of the annual Oxford Studies in Philosophy of Law.
