This Essay is the basis of a presentation I made to a symposium on religious freedom at the Roger Williams University School of Law in October 2004. I inquire, in the Essay, whether we who affirm (what I call) the morality of human rights should want the international law of human rights to protect a right to religious freedom. Along the way, I offer some reflections on the relevance of cultural relativity to the project of universalizing human-rights-claims.
