Like a prayer | The Economist

The Economist: As puffed up as the sense of outrage is from the separationists, the overbaked pieties of parties defending the town’s monthly religious exercises are even more exaggerated. “Americans today should be as free as the Founders were to pray,” says David Cortman of the Alliance Defending Freedom. Nothing, Mr Cortman contends, should interfere with “this sacred practice” of public prayer. However the six Catholics and three Jews on the Supreme Court handle this case, we can rest assured that more sanctimony and unprincipled grasping at straws is on its way. (links to ADF Media site)
