This article deals with one of the most important issues that arose from the recent gathering in Gbarnga, Bong County, Liberia for the proposition to amend the 1984 Constitution of the Republic, declaring Liberia- a nation with diverse religious beliefs and cultural practices- as a “Christian State”. The intent of this account is not to pass a verdict, but to provide an in-depth analysis of the potential clashes of constitutional and fundamental rights under the 1984 Liberian constitution and the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
