Summary "Seidel examines some of the key Supreme Court cases of the last thirty years--including Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission (a bakery that refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple), Trump v. Hawaii (the anti-Muslim travel ban case), American Legion v. American Humanist Association (related to a group maintaining a 40-foot Christian cross on government-owned land), and Tandon v. Newsom (a Santa Clara Bible group exempted from Covid health restrictions), as well as the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade--and how a hallowed legal protection, freedom of religion, has been turned into a tool to advance privilege and impose religion on others."--Provided by publisher.
