This article presents a Protestant defense of a natural law right to religious freedom, properly understood. Though arguing from the classic natural law text, Romans 1:18-32, that human persons have no ultimate natural law right to religious freedom before God, this article finds strong support in the account of God's covenant with Noah in Genesis 8:20-9:17 that human persons do have a penultimate natural law right to religious freedom before fellow human beings, a blessing granted by God.
