GEORGE CONSCIENCE AND ITS ENEMIES
Assaults on religious liberty and traditional morality are growing fiercer. In this revised updated edition, Robert George explodes the myth that the secular elite represents the voice of reason.
In defending what James Madison called the “sacred rights of conscience”—rights for which government shows frightening contempt—George grapples with today’s most controversial issues: same-sex marriage, abortion, transgenderism, genetic manipulation, euthanasia and assisted suicide, religion in politics, judicial activism, and more. His brilliantly argued essays rely not on theological claims or religious authority but on established scientific facts and a philosophical tradition that extends back to Plato and Aristotle.
