Is the right to conscience still alive in America? Or did it die at the United States Supreme Court? That's coming up this weekend on The Public Square®.

James Madison called conscience "the most sacred of all property." Which is the theme of a conversation we are having at the Roundtable right now. As we continue to study the news stories coming in from across the nation on the marriage debate we discover a similar theme. Real people with real families and real businesses are getting wiped out by the U.S. Supreme Court's edicts on human sexuality and personhood. The question is: what happens next for people who simply disagree? Tune in today to hear more.

Yes, we know everyone is talking about the marriage decision -- but we are holding that broadcast just a little longer to solidify our research and resources. So this week on The Public Square® we talk about The Summer Book Club -- the key books that we are reading and how reading changes everything, even Supreme Court decisions. It's a setup for the next story, the Celebration of Liberty live on The Public Square®, and then as the dust settles we face the future of life in America under the rulings of this deeply troubled Supreme Court. All three weeks are connected. So join us as the story unfolds this week on The Public Square®.
