Sacred Ground

Rediscovering America's Sacred Ground, subtitled "Public religion and the pursuit of good," will be on my reading list as soon as SUNY Press releases it. The author is Pagan scholar Barbara McGraw, who "examines the debate about the role of religion in American public life and unravels the confounded rhetoric on all sides. She reveals that no group has been standing on proper ground and that all sides have misused terminology (religion/secular), dichotomies (public/private), and concepts (separation of church and state) in ways that have little relevance to the original intentions of the Founders."
