ABSTRACT
The article presents information on recent U.S. Supreme Court cases regarding religious expression. The religion clauses of the First Amendment provide that the U.S. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Many of the Court's decisions precipitated substantial public discontent and spawned organized efforts to overturn or otherwise alter its decisions. In Lynch versus Donnelly, the issue was the constitutionality of a municipality's inclusion of a creche as part of a seasonal Christmas display in a local park.
