Authors: Fisher, Louis 
Book Description:
It is widely believed that religious liberty is mainly protected by the independent judiciary, especially for religious denominations that represent a small minority. The view is that legislative bodies - operating by majority vote - cannot be expected to protect minority rights, and that judges have the independence and technical expertise to defend the constitutional rights of minorities.
However, legislatures - at both state and national level - have done much to protect religious liberty, including the views of religious minorities. Even during the past half century, when judicial record has measurably improved, individuals and private organizations, tend to turn to the elected officials for help, after being turned down by the courts. This book provides the reader with the means by which elected officials, especially members of Congress have protected religious liberty. The examples discussed in this book start with the statutory recognition of the rights of the conscientious objectors and moves to more recent disputes, including compulsory flag salutes, religious apparel in the military, school prayer, Indian religious beliefs and various statutory exemptions adopted by Congress and state legislature to provide a sturdy defense to religious liberty.

Table of Contents:
Preface; Protecting Minority Rights; Conscientious Objectors; Compulsory Flag Salutes; Religious Apparel in the Military; School Prayer; American Indian Religious Freedom; Religious Use of Peyote; Statutory Exemptions; Conclusions; Index.
