Tolerating Intolerance

Amos N. Guiora

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the tension between state law and religious law; the harm caused by religious extremism; the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; the history of polygamy; government intervention and the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS); children/individuals who have suffered from FLDS extremism; and the “duty to care” obligation that parents owes to their children. The chapter concludes by arguing that membership and participation in civil democratic society explicitly demands that citizens respect the rule of law as supreme.

Keywords:   state law, religious law, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, polygamy, fundamentalist, government intervention
