Inverting the Bill of Rights

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was intended to protect our right to practice our religious faith freely; and yet, the Supreme Court has often invoked this amendment to justify decisions restricting our freedom of religion. The nation’s highest Court has prohibited the teaching of religion in public schools, even when students have parents’ consent and a choice of religious denominations. It has also outlawed the recitation of prayers and the reading of the Bible in public schools. On the other hand, the Court has done nothing to curtail the promotion of secular humanism in the public schools, notwithstanding the First Amendment’s prohibition against “an establishment of religion” and the Court’s own ruling that secular humanism itself is a religion. — F.R. Duplantier, “Stifling the Free Exercise of Religion”
