Familiar bills of spiritual freedom within the usa usually inform a narrative of visionary founders who broke from the centuries-old styles of Christendom to set up a political association devoted to secular and religiously impartial executive. those novel commitments have been supposedly embodied within the faith clauses of the 1st modification. yet this tale is basically a fairytale, Steven Smith says during this incisive exam of a much-mythologized topic.

Smith continues that the exact American contribution to non secular freedom was once now not within the First modification, which used to be meant simply to maintain the political establishment in issues of faith. What was once vital was once the dedication to open contestation among secularist and providentialist understandings of the state which developed over the 19th century. within the 20th century, faraway from vindicating constitutional rules, as traditional knowledge indicates, the perfect courtroom imposed secular neutrality, which successfully repudiated this dedication to open contestation. instead of upholding what was once distinctively American and constitutional, those judgements subverted it.
