The article reports on speeches delivered by U.S. Judge Robert H. Bork before his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. In his speeches, Judge Bork criticized the three-part test formed by the U.S. Court in the 1971 case Lemon versus Kurtzmanto to find out whether a state action has violated the First Amendment's ban of government promotion of religion. The judge claimed that the test was intentionally formed to cover the traces of religion in governmental action.
