Summary
"Questions of religious freedom continue to excite passionate public debate. Proposals involving school prayer and the posting of the Ten Commandments in schools and courtrooms perennially spur controversy. But there is also a sense that the prevailing discourse is exhausted, that no one seems to know how to think about religious freedom in a way that moves beyond our stale, counter-productive thinking on this issue. In Getting Over Equality, Steven D. Smith contends that we must get over our presumption - mistakenly believed to be rooted in the Constitution - that all religions are equally true and virtuous and "authentically American." Smith puts forth an alternative view that the courts should promote an ideal of tolerance rather than equality and neutrality."--BOOK JACKET
