Religious Symbols in a Pluralistic Society

Publikation: AndetUdgivelser på nettet - Net-publikationFormidling


The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in American Legion v. American Humanist Association (2019) about whether the maintenance of the Bladensburg Peace Cross on public land by the state of Maryland violated the First Amendment's Establishment Clause raises a number of interesting questions. Here, I will consider the decision not as a legal matter of constitutional interpretation but as an expression of general philosophical views about what is relevant when considering whether states can uphold religious symbols in a religiously pluralistic society.
