    • public place of religion
    • accomodation is positive for both nation & religion
    • nation has “transcendent” foundation
    • extremist viewpoint goes even further
      • diversity is harmful: “e pluribus unum” invalid?
      • suppression of theological “error” is good
      • legal establishment of *one* state religion
    • multiple establishment|———–|xtian preferentialism|————–|single establishment|
    • similar treatment for all|———-|some more equal than others|—–|there can be only one church
    • establishment = govt financing via taxation
