This paper was my contribution to the conference on “The Scope of Religious Exemptions,” hosted by the Bowling Green State University Department of Philosophy, April 17-18, 2015.
[Update: The paper is now the second chapter of this multi-authored collection: RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS, edited by Kevin Vallier and Michael Weber (Oxford University Press 2018).]
I explain in the paper that both the constitutional law of the United States and the political morality of human rights converge on the conclusion that government may not grant conscience-protecting exemptions only to religious believers.
