A few days ago, in a post called "the Government's view of the content of religion," I asked (among other things), "[w]ould it be wise or wrong [or unconstitutional?] for a government to undertake, as a matter of policy, to push the doctrines of a particular religion in a government-approved direction, or to support a particular government-approved faction within a religious tradition, in order to serve what the government regards as the common good?"
Check out this very detailed and thoughtful post, at the Positive Liberty blog, by Jonathan Rowe, responding to my thoughts. I don't necessarily with (what appear to be) Rowe's assumptions about the views and wants of "religious conservatives", but he really gets to some very important and interesting questions.
