Saluting the flag: A matter of speech and religious liberty By David Adler It is fair to say that the government’s preeminent responsibility is to provide for the nation’s defense.

By David Adler “If it was not the most important decision in the history of the court,” Justice Stanley Reed observed of Brown v. Board of Education, “it was very close.” The Supreme Court’s opinion in Brown, delivered on May 17, 1954, held segregation in public schools unconstitutional, a decision that paved the way for…...
