The Corner

Federalism and Religion

I wrote today that most conservatives had lined up against the Supreme Court’s Locke v. Davey decision. That’s true, but it’s not uniformly true. Over at Southern Appeal, Quin Hillyer has been making the case that the Court’s decision was right. (I doubt he would sign on, however, to all of its reasoning, much of which I think Justice Scalia’s dissent effectively shredded.) Hillyer is stressing the federalist angle, although not explicitly questioning incorporation.
