Titre: The courts and secular humanism Auteur:Hammond, Phillip Sujet:Secular/Secularism/ Secularization ; Humanism ; Court/Courts/Courtly ; Sociology of Religion; Sociology of Religion ; Article ; Secular Humanism As Court System'S Ideological Focus, Viewpoint Critiqued; Description:
The complaint that secular humanism is to blame for a number of society's ills, & that the court system, moreover, chooses to foster secular humanism over alternative ideologies, is questioned. It is shown that the courts have frequently protected traditional religion through such decisions as Everson (1970), which reaffirmed tax exemption for churches. The courts have often decided cases in such a manner as to extend religious rights & freedom, as in Yoder (1972), which allowed Amish parents to stop their children's education after eight years, & Widman v. Vincent (1981), which assured a religious student group on a U campus equal access to campus facilities. Because these kinds of cases require a balancing of public vs private (religious) interests, the courts necessarily employ language that applies equally to all contending parties & thus may appear to foster secular concerns. As heterogeneity among contending parties increases, the use of neutral language is promoted, as illustrated in a 1922 Georgia Supreme Court case. AA.

Titre: Religion and Family Values in Presidential Voting Auteur:Hammond, Phillip E.; Shibley, Mark A.; Solow, Peter M. Sujet:Religion ; Sociology & Social History; Description:
It is well known that ideological factors enter into the presidential voting decision. Whether such factors have impact over and beyond steering voters into one or another party is more difficult to discern, however, a dilemma complicated by the various dimensions any ideology may contain. This article looks specifically at two such dimensions in the elections of 1980, 1984, 1988, and 1992: the religious dimension and the family values dimension. In the elections of the 1980s, these two dimensions appear to have had no impact over and beyond party identification and a modest additional impact of a generalized ideological outlook. In 1992, however, both dimensions outweighed all other ideological components, with the family values dimension playing an especially potent separate role. The article concludes with some speculation on the implications these findings have for the two major political parties.
