Religious people

The U.S. Supreme Court has declared on five different occasions that "we are a religious people whose institutions presuppose a Supreme Being." These decisions were:

  • Lynch, 465 U.S. at 675
  • Marsh, 463 U.S. at 792
  • Walz, 397 U.S. at 672
  • Schempp, 374 U.S. at 213
  • Zorach, 343 U.S. at 313.

It follows that the Establishment Clause does not deny government the power to acknowledge officially the religious character of the American people.
