Biden’s gay rights/religious liberty opportunity

Andrew Koppelman

The Democrats need another political win – preferably one that appeals to wavering Republican voters.  The fraught issue of gay rights and religious liberty offers an opportunity, one that could also help fix the toxic polarization of American politics.

Sooner or later the extremists who now dominate the Supreme Court will confront that issue, and will almost certainly resolve it in a clumsy and destructive way.  The Biden administration could help both itself and the country by getting there first, developing a balance that ameliorates the religious right’s worst fears.

So I argue in my newest column at The Hill.
