28. Courts have already managed to handle that question over the years.

How about we just look at the reasons why an action was taken? If no secular purpose exists for the law, it runs afoul of the Lemon test. My personal thought is that this amendment is not necessary - correct enforcement of the 1st amendment would take care of the issue here. But I do appreciate attention being brought to how inconsistent that's been.

You may believe your posts followed a logical sequence, but they did not. You jumped immediately into wondering how this amendment would control what people believe, when that was never part of the discussion.
