Rowe on Blasphemy Law and the Founding Fathers

Rowe on Blasphemy Law and the Founding Fathers August 19, 2007

Jon Rowe has a very interesting post about blasphemy laws and the founding fathers. He’s replying to Walter Berns. The interesting thing about it to me is how much Berns, for a guy who favors punishment for speech (he believes the constitution only forbids prior restraint), concedes that the founding principles of freedom of conscience made the end of blasphemy laws inevitable.
