One nation, under gods

David Bernstein weighs in on an issue, not irrelevant to this blog (where the First Amendment is a topic), I blogged about on Dean’s World a few weeks ago (I recycled the title, which is just too good to only use once): The admission of paganism into the pantheon of “officially approved” religions.

Obviously, there’s not much to talk about. The Supreme Court made it clear over a decade ago that even “primitive” or “barbaric” religions — I use the quotes, as I have throughout this post, advisedly — that freedom of religion is hardly meaningful unless extended across the board.

Along similar, but entirely different lines:  My thoughts on Yom Kippur, of a decidedly less but still somewhat universalist hue, are posted here at Dean’s World this morning, the eve of the fast.
