Abstract:     
While not claiming to be dispositive, this article seeks to alleviate some of the confusion surrounding the current stance of the Supreme Court in regards to the separation of church and state. This piece strives to articulate the standard of church-state separation the Supreme Court applies, demonstrate a number of open questions surrounding this standard, and propose certain answers to such questions.
