Mawdsley, Ralph D.; Mawdsley, Alice S.
West's Education Law Reporter, v46 n3 p897-912 Jul 21 1988
Reviews contemporary court cases to show that free exercise claims are religious and therefore unenforceable under the Establishment Clause's "Lemon" test prohibiting religious activities in public schools. Discuses inadequacies in judicial perception involving compelling interest, a pattern of anti-theistic decisions, and lesser protection for religious speech versus other First Amendment protections. Includes 114 references. (MLH)
