Church-State Separation Under Fire. Third Annual Report on Church-State Conflict in the United States.
Boston, G. Robert
This report provides an overview of church-state conflict incidents that occurred in the United States from September 1990 through August 1991. The report was compiled by Americans United for Separation of Church and State, an organization concerned with the potential erosion of the First Amendment's requirement of separation of church and state. The report lists incidents that were drawn from information provided by Americans United members, media accounts, and the action files of Americans United. The focus is at the state level; thus church-state incidents at the federal level are not included. A state-by-state survey of incidents is detailed identifying a total of 205 incidents in 45 states. The report categorizes church-state conflicts into four areas: religion in the public schools; state endorsement of religion; public funding of religious organizations; and free exercise disputes.
