Latest advocacy by legal scholars for religious-liberty exemptions in marriage-equality legislation

12/05/09 Mirror of Justice - entry by law professor Rick Garnett:

Since the publication of Same-Sex Marriage and Religious Liberty: Emerging Conflicts in 2008, co-editor Robin Fretwell Wilson and several other legal scholars have advocated for religious-liberty exemptions in marriage-equality legislation. They typically time their advocacy letters to coincide with an impending vote by a state legislative committee. (See my compilation of the letters here, and a recent critical review of the book.) As the New Jersey Senate Judiciary Committee prepares to vote on marriage-equality legislation, these scholars have sent their exemption recommendations to the Committee's Chair.

The two letters Garnett references in his post have password protections, but you can find them linked in this related post by law professor Michael J. Perry.
