Great news, as relayed from the judicial blog “Religion Clause, blasphemy laws in Pennsylvania violate ALL 3 PRONGS of the Lemon Test. (Read more at the link by clicking on “blasphemy”)
Now, it is rare that we see such laws enforced in the U.S., but many states still have similar rules on the books.

I can only hope that more such cases will be added to the list of legal buttresses for our most important freedom!
