Virtually everyone supports religious liberty and opposes discrimination. But how do we handle the hard questions that arise when exercises of religious liberty seem to discriminate unjustly? How do we promote the common good while respecting conscience in a diverse society? Using the pending Supreme Court case Masterpiece Cakeshop as a case study, Ryan T. Anderson, John Corvino, and Sherif Girgis will explore these questions, followed by responses from Christopher Tollefsen and Kevin Vallier.
