Religion as Distinct in the First Amendment

The Distinctiveness of Religion in American Law: Rethinking Religion Clause Jurisprudence by Kathleen M. Brady (Cambridge, 2015) — Religion’s traditional distinctiveness under the First Amendment has been challenged by courts and scholars. As America grows more secular and as religious and nonreligious convictions are increasingly seen as interchangeable, many have questioned whether special treatment is still fair. In its recent decisions, the Supreme Court has made clear that religion will continue to be treated differently, but we lack a persuasive account of religion’s uniqueness that can justify this difference. This book aims to develop such an account.
