The article argues how religious liberty relates to American federalism and how conceptions of religious liberty might be revised through federalism. It focuses on the way the religion clauses of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution apply to the states. It also discusses disincorporating the Establishment Clause and how it would affect the cause of religious liberty. It also states the effect of the Supreme Court's intervention on the religious clauses as applied to all levels of government.
