Roger Trigg on Religious Freedom

Roger Trigg, Free to Believe? Religious Freedom in a Liberal Society (London: Theos, 2010).

The latest newsletter from Theos announces the launch of a new report by Roger Trigg, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick and Academic Director of the Centre for the Study of Religion in Public Life at Kellogg College, Oxford.

Entitled Free to Believe?, it tackles ‘the silent downgrading of religious rights in contemporary Britain’, arguing that ‘human beings are naturally religious animals and have a prima facie natural right to freely exercise their religion, which should not simply be equated with the right to free speech’.

More information is available here, and the whole report is very kindly made available for download here.
