Two provisions in the First Amendment are supposed to protect religious freedom: the "no establishment" clause, which bars laws that would give any one denomination a privileged status, and the "free exercise" clause, which was intended to exclude legal interference with religious practice.

Every now and then, I read a book I wish I had written. It is his view that the First Amendment does not offer much latitude to the public expression of religion. Such a book is Patrick M. Garry’s Wrestling with God: The Courts’ Tortuous Treatment of Religion. But as Garry points out, even a strict separationist like Levy never thought that the expression under God in the Pledge of Allegiance would ever be challenged in the courts.

Carry explains in Wrestling with God, the Religion Clause of the First Amendment are complementary means of protecting religious freedom. The no-establishment rule is not a check on religious expression and exercise but a constraint on government It is not a sword driving private religious expression from the marketplace of ideas; radier, it is a shield, constraining the state to protect religiously motivated speech and action. Carry untangles the Court's church-state doctrines and proposes clearly and efficiently a bold, simple understanding of the Religion Clause.

The relationship between church and state is both controversial and unsettled. For decades, the courts have vacillated dramatically in their rulings on when a particular governmental accommodation rises to the level of an impermissible state establishment of religion. Without a comprehensive theory of the First Amendment establishment clause, religion cases have devolved into a jurisprudence of minutiae. Seemingly insignificant occurrences, such as a student reading a religious story or a teacher wearing a cross on a necklace, have led to years of litigation. And because of the constant threat of judicial intrusion, a pervasive social anxiety exists about the presence of religion in American public life. This anxiety, in turn, leads to more litigation, as opposing parties constantly try to influence the fluctuating direction of the courts' religion doctrines.

Courts have often treated the two religion clauses of the First Amendment as contradictory, with the free exercise clause used to protect religious practices and the establishment clause employed to limit the public expression of religious beliefs. Wrestling with God not only reconciles the relationship between the two clauses but also distinguishes them in terms of their respective purposes. Whereas the exercise clause focuses on individual freedom, the establishment clause addresses the institutional autonomy of religious organizations. Under this distinction, many cases currently falling under the establishment clause―e.g., prayer in the schools―should instead be governed by the exercise clause.

Unlike many contemporary interpretations of the establishment clause, the model offered in Wrestling with God views the clause not as a check on religion but as a protection against a specific kind of religious coercion―the kind that results from governmental interference with the freedom of religious institutions. As Patrick M. Garry skillfully argues in Wrestling with God, the establishment clause does not exist for the benefit of a secular society; it exists for those religious institutions in which individuals seek to practice their beliefs.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

"In this sound, comprehensive, and up-to-date work, Patrick Garry provokes the reader to understand how the protection of speech is given far more absolute protection than religion, even as one would expect religion to be doubly protected by both the speech and religion clauses. While this speech/religion clause comparison has been hinted at before, no one has presented it with greater clarity than Garry."―Douglas W. Kmiec, Caruso Chair and Professor of Constitutional Law, Pepperdine University

"No one has done a better job of understanding the way the courts have framed free speech and religious liberty issues than Patrick Garry. His presentation of the forced tension between religious liberty and the establishment provision in the First Amendment is equally masterful. This is a book that should enjoy wide appeal."―William A. Donohue, President, Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights

"Patrick Garry offers a lively and provocative critique of the Supreme Court's approach to the establishment and free exercise clauses. He challenges the 'wall of separation' metaphor, rejects the endorsement test, and argues that neutrality toward religion is not enough. Broadly reinterpreting the scope of each clause, Garry advocates a sea change in constitutional doctrine, one that would permit the government to favor religion in non-coercive ways."―Daniel O. Conkle, Robert H. McKinney Professor of Law, India
