The Establishment Clause

Can the states establish a religion?

by David Honig, 2004

In 2004, Supreme Court Justices Thomas and Scalia wrote opinions indicating their readiness to allow states to establish state religions. Thomas called for revisiting the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and envisioned letting states confer authority on a particular religion. Honig, who practices law in Indianapolis (and is the artist behind Hypnocrites) wrote this article in 2004 for the Miami Herald. Since then, two right-wing justices have joined the Court.
