The Establishment Clause in the 1st Amendment
Help me study for my Political Science class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.
From your reading of the Bill of Rights in chapter four, you know that the Establishment Clause in the 1st Amendment creates a separation between church and state. However, as your text also explains, there are basically two different interpretations of the Establishment Clause in American politics: the Accommodationist view and the Separationist view. For this discussion topic, I would like you to elaborate on each view, discuss which view the U.S. Supreme Court has adopted, and give your opinion as to which view should take precedence and why.
