    This Supreme Court might decide to play favorites, maybe the next precedent is “only religions existing during the founding of the US can display texts in schools.” Just because previous courts protected the separation of church and state doesn’t mean this court has to abide by that precedent.

      Just wait for an Islamic group to sue then. Or wait for Scientology to decide they don’t want to be a second tier religion and start suing.

      Or an atheist group maybe. Idk there’s enough competition in religious zealots to make picking a favorite hard to do unless they just throw out the 1st ammendment prohibitions.

      Ah, okay, so then the Five Pillars of Islam go up next to them.

      This is not going to be an easy fight for them to win.

      This would disenfranchise a majority of the population of their rights. I can see things popping off if they were to attempt it.
