Separation of Church and State: The Ongoing Crisis. America's United Second Annual Report on Church State Conflict in the United States.
Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, Silver Spring, MD.
The report from an informal state-by-state survey lists incidents that implicate the principle of separation of church and state. The report is not meant to be a comprehensive list of every church-state problem in the United States. Rather, it is intended to be a "snapshot" of conflicts throughout the country. The document covers the period from September 1989 through August 1990. A total of 192 incidents in 46 states is recorded. The report categorizes the church-state conflicts into four areas: (1) religion in the public schools; (2) state endorsement of religion; (3) public funding of religious organizations; and (4) free exercise disputes. A state-by-state summary of incidents is included. (DB)
