The Establishment Clause
In this video, you should consider the following:
- The government cannot prefer or “establish” one religion over another.
- This clause is designed to prevent excessive government entanglement with religion.
- The Supreme Court has held that because of a long history associated with certain practices, the Establishment Clause will not be violated.
- Ex: Supreme Court has held that having the 10 Commandments in a courthouse does not violate the Establishment Clause because of the long-standing historical significance.
