Our topics included:

  2. How we reconcile with other displays such as currency - Supreme Court Opening Prayer - House of Representatives Opening Prayer
  3. What is the Lemon Test and should it be relevant?
  4. Does the setting of the display matter - review Texas and Kentucky cases
  5. Does it matter which version (Protestant, Catholic or Jewish) of The Ten Commandments is displayed?
  6. Is the secular vs. religious test workable?
  7. Professors Scaperlanda and Tepker discuss how should these cases turn out
