RESOLVED: Religious freedom should be absolute in all aspects of life in
the United States.
Religious freedom is a fundamental civil liberty guaranteed to every American citizen, but is it an absolute in our society? Recent events have demonstrated that religious freedom has become a highly contentious issue that sometimes prompts sensitivity, fear, and misunderstanding.  Join the Social Sciences Dean's Ambassadors Council for a lively and informative debate regarding religious freedom as an absolute in American life.

Please note: The positions taken by the professors during this debate do not necessarily reflect their personal viewpoints.
