Gerard Bradley on Town of Greece Ruling


Recommended reading: Writing for Public Discourse, law professor (and occasional Bench Memos contributor) Gerard V. Bradley celebrates Justice Kennedy’s recent majority opinion in Town of Greece v. Galloway as “the Court’s best piece of Establishment Clause work in decades—and a happy omen for religious liberty in our country.”

Among other things, Bradley praises the Court for treating the case as genuinely about prayer, not about “ceremonial deism,” and he is hopeful that the ruling has “inaugurated—or renewed, with a fresh commitment—a partnership between constitutional doctrine and historical practice.”
