Forte Speaks at the Claremont Institute’s Wilson Seminar on the Framers’ Thoughts on What Constitutes Religion

On April 27, C|M|LAW Professor David Forte delivered a paper in Washington to the Wilson Seminar of the Natural Law Center of Claremont University.  The Wilson Seminar on the role of Natural Law in American Constitutional Jurisprudence, is named for James Wilson, a central figure in the formation of the Constitution, and sponsored by the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy. The topic of the latest meeting was the Parameters of Religious Liberty.  Professor Forte’s contribution centered on what kinds of “religion” the framers had in mind when they went out of their way in the First Amendment to guarantee the “Free Exercise of Religion.” It was entitled  Satan, Religious Freedom, and the Natural Law.
