    Former Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart noted (in his dissent of Abington Township, 1963) ‘if religious exercises are held to be impermissible activity in schools, religion is placed at an artificial and state-created disadvantage.

And a refusal to permit them is seen not as the realization of state neutrality, but rather as the establishment of a religion of secularism.

  4. Erik Pevernagie:

(Township)
