ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the issue of revising the religion clause in the First Amendment in the U.S. The author argues that it is worth it to think about the issue surrounding the likely revision of the First Amendment after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the New York school-prayer case. The author believes that demands making Bible reading and the recitation of the Lord's Prayer in public schools unconstitutional may also be underway. He expounds on the draw backs of amending the First Amendment of the Constitution.
