The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a non-profit institute that champions religious liberty through “the courts of law, the courts of public opinion and the academy,” recently bestowed its annual Canterbury Medal on Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks for his work in keeping religion alive in the public square.  According to Sacks, “Religious liberty as it developed in America is, I believe, not just a great political achievement. It is also a great spiritual achievement because it is based on humility and self-restraint and the knowledge that this is one nation under God, because it involves asking each of us to make the great religious gesture of making space for difference.”
