Robert L Cord relates a cogent history of America's religious tradition, demonstrating how current "establishment clause" jurisprudence would be unrecognizible to our Founders. Cord documents important, little know facts about church and state relations in early America. From Jefferson petitioning Congress for appropriations for Catholic priests to "convert the Indians," to Massachusetts having an established church until 1833, forty-four years after the ratification of the First Amendment,Cord, in an informative and enjoyable manner, proves conclusively that Christian principles and Civil government have always existed concomitantly in American life.

Format: Hardcover
Covers legal, political, and historical trends of the varied Church/State relationships in the U.S. Easy to read and well documented. I did my honors thesis on Church/State relationships, and I wish I had read this first. It has an intelligent analysis that does not merely assume the modern conception and argue it, but considers many sides of the issues. A must for people who want to think these issues through.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The case is made and demonstrated that the Big Lie technique learned from Germany worked well enough in America when applied by FDR's appointments. Very little is what folks ought to think about the scholarship of the Court-they are basically hacks. Their weakness is not, pehaps, in their knowledge of the law but in the application of scholarship outside the law which they bring in for the purposes of imposing their own views on what the law should be. Problem is, each science has its own methods and its own uncertainties which mere lawyers are unaware of. So, History, in the case of Everson, was mis used to create a giant lie for the Masonic view the Court imposed in that case. Brown v Board of Education stooped into sociology to create another whopper. R v W was a legal stupidity. We might be better off passing a law forbidding judges to don robes-they all seem to think that by putting on a robe they become Moses.

Format: Hardcover
This book, like most in this area, has a severe bias. This book's bias is towards the Christian Right's perspective, that Jefferson et al. were strong Christians. Unfortunately, just a little bit of digging will uncover the disinformation contained in the text.
