Transcript of Establishment of Religion

Establishment of Religion 1st Admendment The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment prohibits the establishment of a national religion by the Congress or the preference of one religion over another, non-religion over religion, or religion over non-religion. Supreme Court began to interpret the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses in such a manner as to restrict the promotion of religion by state governments. For example, in the Board of Education of Kiryas Joel Village School District v. Grumet, 512 U.S. 687 (1994), Justice David Souter, writing for the majority, concluded that "government should not prefer one religion to another, or religion to irreligion." Court Case Court Case In 2007, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in Inouye v Kemna, ruled that a parolee can not be forced to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings as a part of his parole when there is a conflict between the religious belief of the parolee and that of Alcoholics Anonymous.
