What is Religion? (RELI 10) Final Project Instructions: You must answer one of the following prompts, in a 4-5 pp. essay, 12 pt. font, double spaced. You must provide textual support, appropriately cited, for your answers. No outside sources are permitted. You must submit your paper via Turnitin on Blackboard, no later than Midnight on Tuesday, 12/18. Your paper must include the Hofstra Honor Code: “I pledge on my honor that I have done this work with honesty and integrity, without giving or receiving unauthorized assistance.” 2) We began the course by considering the complicated notion of religious liberty, and how this complexity is being handled by the legal system, specifically in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case. We also looked at how the right of Religious Liberty was being expanded in the Attorneys General Manual, revised under former Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. This raised the very difficult question of how to handle conflicts between the right of religious freedom and other civil rights. Discuss this issue: Why is religious freedom important? Why is religious freedom controversial? What, if any, limits can there be on religious freedom? How do we balance religious freedom and other civil rights? Your discussion must be based on a theoretically informed notion of religion; specifically, you must incorporate at least two theoretical models of religion, as set out in this course, into your discussion (i.e. signaling theory, Supernatural Punishment Hypothesis, Religion as Worldview, “religion” as political tool). Be sure to use textual support in your discussion. In this essay you are developing your own critical opinion on the subject. The particular position you take will not be evaluated or judged in determining your grade. Your paper will be graded on the basis of the strength of your argument (coherence, logical structure, supporting evidence, theoretical insight).
