1. McGarvie’s book is a study of the political struggles that surrounded the disestablishment of state churches in the early National period. He begins by pointing out that many Americans share my previously held and flawed assumption that the First Amendment “separates church and state.” Rather, McGarvie elucidates, the Amendment protects religious expression as a matter of private conscience from incursion by government. It does not, in fact, separate church and state. One might at this juncture despair that the evangelicals have a point, when they argue that the Constitution did not separate church and state. Not so fast, says McGarvie, who asserts that the Constitution provided the legal and ideological structure that made separation ultimately inevitable. Moreover, a larger cultural transformation — unleashed by the Revolution and nurtured by the societal and cultural changes of the early Republic — hastened and supported this development. McGarvie’s work traces the transformation...

1. The Court agreed with the law laid down by J. Chagla , in Robasa Khanum vs. Khodabad Irani’s case , wherein the learned judge has held that the conduct of a spouse who converts to Islam has to be judged on the basis of the rules of justice equity and good conscience. It was further observed that , looked from another angle , the second marriage of an apostate – husband would be in violation of the rules of natural justice . Assuming that a Hindu husband has a right to embrace Islam as his religion , he has no right under the Act, to marry again without getting his marriage under the Act dissolved. The second marriage after conversion to Islam , would, thus , be in violation of the rules of natural justice and as such would be void. The Court remarked that all the ingredients of Section 494 IPC were satisfied in this case, and therefore the offence of bigamy had been committed. The Court was of the opinion that many Hindus have changed their religion and have become converts to Islam...

1. Does it matter constitutionally whether tax exemptions, exclusions, and deductions for religious institutions and activities are matched by comparable exemptions, exclusions, and deductions for secular entities? The U.S. Supreme Court has, on several occasions, answered this question affirmatively. For example, in Texas Monthly v. Bullock, the Court struck a sales tax exemption for religious periodicals, principally on the ground that the exemption was limited to sectarian publications.1 The plurality opinion in Texas Monthly relied, inter alia, upon the Court’s decision in Walz v. Tax Commission.2 In Walz, the Court had sustained New York’s exemption of religious properties from real property taxation, characterizing that exemption as part of a larger policy that excluded from taxation “a broad class of property owned [*PG806]by nonprofit, quasi-public corporations.”3 The Walz Court upheld New York’s tax-exemption of religious properties on several grounds, one of which was the sim...
