Have a Happy [Establishment-Clause-Approved] Holiday

Posted: December 25, 2016 by Nazim in Uncategorized

This week’s episode covers whether or not Christmas displays are a violation of the Establishment clause, by going through cases like Lee v. Weisman, Lynch v. Donnelly, Allegheny County v. ACLU, & McCreary County v. ACLU.  In addition, Brett and Nazim discuss the current cases of Advocate Health Care Network v. Stapelton, Saint Peter’s Health Care System v. Kaplan, and Dignity Health v. Rollins, which cover whether or not institutions that are religious, but not churches, qualify for ERISA exceptions .  The law starts at (03:59).

New Episode!

    What do you call the jolly ol’ fat man who goes around putting up satanic statues next to nativity scenes on government property?

    Establishment Clause


    • Nazim says:


      It took me a quick minute to get that, so I’m going to explain it for others of lesser intellect or satanic culture who fail to grasp the joke as readily as I did, at the risk of butchering the funny. The joke relies on the fact that clause and Claus are homonyms, and although they are both fat judgmental bastards, one is a resident of the north pole who violates national airspaces at high velocity, while the other is a large fictitious wall between church and government.
