About the Report
Whose Faith Matters? The Fight for Religious Liberty Beyond the Christian Right is a comprehensive report that documents the many contexts in which people of faith engaged in humanitarian and social justice work have fought for the right to exercise their religion.
Examples of religious freedom advocacy mentioned in the report include the right to:
- provide food and shelter to immigrants
- perform marriages for same-sex partners
- access abortion
- protest war and the death penalty
- protect the environment.
The report also discusses how the Christian Right has positioned itself as the sole defender of “religious liberty” while in fact advocating for only a narrow band of religious views.
By offering a sweeping account of religious liberty activism by progressive movements and uncovering how right-wing activists have fought for conservative Christian hegemony rather than “religious liberty," Whose Faith Matters? challenges the leading popular narrative of religious freedom and charts a path forward to ensure religious freedom for all.
