The Growing Clash Between Religious Freedom and the Gay Movement


George W. Dent


Just a few years ago when I started mentioning the war between the gay movement and religious freedom, many people asked, “What war?” With the vicious backlash after the passage of Proposition 8 restoring traditional marriage in California, not many people ask that now. The war has escalated quickly. My law review article about it, published about three years ago, was almost 100 pages and 600 footnotes long. It is already out of date because of so many recent developments.
