Continuing the discussion from First Amendment, Neutrality, Atheism, and Evolution:
Many people talk a great deal bout the First Amendment, meaning freedom of speech and freedom of religion (and from religion). Do not also forget the Freedom of Assembly, which is part of what guarantees the first two. Have you thought of this much?
The linked article is to my colleague at WUSTL, John Inazu, a Law Professor here who has been recently reinvigorating this idea. He makes an excellent point. Freedom of association (or assembly) is a necessary precondition for freedom of speech and religion.
