Meese's Attack on Supreme Court

In your editorial (July 11), "Ignorance in High Places," you accuse Meese of ignorance of the "establishment of religion" clause in the Constitution. Do your editorial writers know what the Founding Fathers meant by that phrase? Evidently not!

They should study the history of the time, or maybe even look at England or Scandinavia today, to see what an "established church" is.

The opposite of "establishment" for religion is not hostility to religion. It may mean neutrality, but it certainly can include cooperation between church and state where it will be mutually helpful.

Your editorial writers should study history and define some terms.
