Has the Supreme Court Ignored Its Own Advice? (May 14, 2014)

Many Christians are rightly celebrating the Supreme Court’s recent decision upholding the constitutionality of the predominately Christian invocations given prior to meetings of the town council for Greece, New York. But the opinion also exposed the hypocrisy of the Court’s past religious rulings. The Court said that it would be wrong to “sweep away what has so long been settled”—like public invocations—because it would “begin anew the very divisions along religious lines that the Establishment Clause [was] to prevent.

If doing that is wrong, then why has the Supreme Court spent the last sixty years sweeping away long-established public practices related to and recognizing Christianity?

Perhaps the “very divisions along religious lines” that fracture our society today are a product of the Court’s modern practices of promoting atheism by “sweeping away” public recognitions of Christianity.
