Opinion | The Supreme Court Wants to End the Separation of Church and State

Opinion | The Supreme Court Wants to End the Separation of Church and StateMany legal scholars in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s radical decision to reverse Roe v. Wade have focused on the dangerous implications of the court’s centuries-old worldview on protections for things such as same-sex marriage and contraception. This concern is real, but there is another issue with equally grave constitutional consequences, one that portends the emergence of a foundational alteration of American government itself. Considered alongside two First Amendment rulings last term, the Dobbs decision marks a serious step in an emerging legal campaign by religious conservatives on the Supreme Court to undermine the bedrock concept of separation of church and state and to promote Christianity as an intrinsic component of democratic government. The energy behind this idea was apparent in Justice Samuel Alito’s speech last month for Notre Dame Law School’s Religious Liberty Initiative…

Federal Court Upholds Washington, DC Regulation Requiring Child Care Workers to Have College Degrees

Federal Court Upholds Washington, DC Regulation Requiring Child Care Workers to Have College DegreesLast Friday, the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit upheld an onerous Washington, DC law requiring child care workers to have a college degree. The ruling is understandable in light of Supreme Court precedent giving the government very broad deference in enacting “economic” regulations (though it stretches even that precedent to the limit). But if the ruling is a correct application of precedent, it serves to highlight how awful the precedent itself is. As described by the court, the DC regulation requires childcare workers in “child development homes” – defined as “private residences where two or more caregivers are responsible for up to twelve children” to have “at least an associate’s degree ‘with a major in early childhood education, early childhood development, child and family studies or a closely related field.'” Teachers in “childcare facilities…

Kinzinger: Trump’s ‘evolving explanation’ on FBI search ‘just like January 6′

Kinzinger: Trump’s ‘evolving explanation’ on FBI search ‘just like January 6′Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) on Monday characterized former President Trump’s shifting defenses for taking classified documents to his Mar-a-Lago estate as an “evolving explanation” similar to that of Trump’s blaming a variety of groups for storming the Capitol that pinned the riot on everyone but his own supporters. During an appearance on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” host Wolf Blitzer asked Kinzinger to assess how much of a national security risk it was to keep such highly sensitive material outside of a secure government space as a host of Republican coalesce around defending Trump and insisting he did nothing wrong. “The explanations from Donald Trump fearing stuff was planted, to all the sudden saying he just like mentally declassified this stuff to saying well people take work home all the time, I mean, just like anything, just like January 6 when…
