I earlier swiped the statistics link below from Eugene Volokh, and now Prof. Volokh gives us this excellant short piece on the old canard about "Separation of Church and State" meaning that laws enacting one's morality being unconstitutional. I link to it not because of any topicality, its an amazingly old bit of illogic that repeatedly refloats, but because Prof. Volokh does such a good job of disposing of this one in short order.
In my law school days, it surprised me how long it took to dispose of this bit of poor reasoning among students who should have known better how to think. No doubt Prof. Volokh has dealt with that one in class too often to count.
