On Alito's Confirmation

The Baptist Joint Committee has posted an evaluation by Hollyn Hollman of Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito's record on church-state issues. Americans United also has an extensive report reviewing his church-state record.

Don Byrd at Blog from the Capital has been doing a good job of posting updates from Alito's confirmation hearings on issues related to church-state separation.

Most of the questioning during the hearings have focused on Alito's views on abortion. It looks like Alito will be easily confirmed.

The future of the principle of church-state separation in this nation will soon rest in the hands of a new mix of justices.
