Commisserating With Cornyn

Visiting with Sen. John Cornyn (R.-Tex.), Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito indicated he was not enchanted with the court’s precedents on religious expression. 

Cornyn told reporters Alito “commiserated” with him about a 2000 case involving a Texas school district, in which the court ruled it was unconstitutional for students to say a voluntary prayer before football games. 

Alito, Cornyn said, gave “the impression that the court’s decisions were incoherent in this area of the law in a way that really gives the impression of hostility to religious speech and religious expression.”
