That Godless Court?
Supreme Court Decisions on Church-state RelationshipsBook - 1994
The religion clause of the First Amendment, seemingly simple and clear, has been and continues to be controversial in its application. In this introduction to church-state questions, Ronald Flowers discusses the relationship between religion and government as reflected in the decisions of the Supreme Court. This book is at once an explanation of what the Court has done over the years in the highly volatile area of church-state decisions and a strong argument for the care and nurturing of religious freedom. It is an ideal primer for clergy and laypeople who need to know what the Supreme Court has and has not said about the relationship between church and state and what is and is not permissible. Specific topics covered in this book include government aid to church-related schools, prayer in public schools, church property, workplace issues, and taxation.
