All Current Features

A Fixed Meaning of Religion in the First Amendment: (Note: one free download allowed) The Supreme Court has never clearly defined religion. While the debate may seem initially like an academic one, defining religion is key to determining the nature and scope of religious freedom.

The definition aims to remain true to the original understanding and intent behind the term while creating a workable test for a pluralistic society. The article analyzes and criticizes the major scholarship proposing a definition and then offers a novel approach.
