Harvard Hosts Conference on Religious Accommodation in the Age of Civil Rights

Harvard hosts a conference on Religious Accommodation in the Age of Civil Rights (Thursday, April 3 - Saturday, April 5, 2014):

HarvardCurrent controversies over marriage equality, antidiscrimination law, and the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate have raised conflicts between religious claims, on one hand, and LGBT equality and women’s rights, on the other. The conference seeks to deepen our understanding of the competing claims by bringing together nationally recognized scholars in the fields of sexuality, gender, and law and religion.

"Religious accommodation"? The very term brings to mind Jim Crow and the sneering pretense of "separate but equal." There are occasions when 'tolerance' is itself a form of bigotry.
