Let me offer a brief overview of the conference at this point, because we’ve got a lot to do, and little time to do it in.It’s important for us to recognize that if we don’t promote and protect religious values in our society, and give religious organizations the opportunity to flourish–to do what they do best–and if we don’t give people of religious faith, whatever faith they are, the freedom to exercise it properly, we are not being neutral.There is a sense, I think, among some people in the country that we have to have this inviolate separation between church and state, and that means, in a sense, we almost have to be hostile to religion wherever it exists. Obviously, we have to make sure that we abide by the Establishment Clause, that Congress does not establish any religion in this country.There are particular issues raised when we’re talking about the government, and we’ll mostly avoid those today because we don’t have time to cover them.But I would point out that we have a wealth of written materials out in front, including a copy of some guidelines that were published several years ago under the Clinton administration that address the obligation of governmental employers with regard to employee religious expression.
