30 St. Louis U.L.J. 275 (1986)


In the wake of Everson v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court has enforced a scheme of privatizing religion. However, this privatization scheme is met with criticism. One such criticism is this Article’s proposition that this scheme destroys religious consciousness in order to stymie religious factions. Through an examination of the normative view of privatization and its application to recent cases, the Author argues that hostility to religious consciousness is the denial of religious liberty as it reduces religion from an objective truth to a subjective preference.
