Voices of Reason: Frederick S. Lane on the Religious Right’s Assault on the Supreme Court
November's featured speaker in CFI-NYC's Voices of Reason lecture series is Frederick S. Lane, author of The Court and the Cross: The Religious Right's Campaign to Reshape the Supreme Court (Beacon Press, 2008), a disturbing study of the ways in which the nation's highest court, as a result of appointments made by presidents beholden to the Religious Right, has moved away from a strict interpretation of the First Amendment and has allowed unprecedented religious interference with government. Lane will offer predictions for the future as well as an analysis of the past. The substance of Lane's talk will, of course, be greatly affected by the results of Election 2008. Lane is an attorney, an expert witnesses in court cases involving invasion of privacy, and is working on a new book on privacy in an age of computer voyeurism.
