He also gave the annual Constitution Day address at The Kings’ College in Manhattan, on the Masterpiece Cakeshop case and the broader conflict between anti-discrimination laws and religious liberty. In his address, Movsesian discussed the cultural and political trends that drive that conflict and the likely outcome in the courts.

Finally, Professor Movsesian presented a paper at a conference on “Church and State in a Time of Crisis,” sponsored by the Morningside Institute. Professor Movsesian’s paper addressed a recent California bill requiring clergy members to report to state authorities information regarding suspected child abuse, including information clergy members obtain during confidential spiritual counseling.
