The Lord Was Not on Trial

This is the story of People of the State of Illinois ex rel. Vashti McCollum v. Board of Education of School District No. 71, Champaign County, Illinois, et al. The action arose as a challenge to a program of sectarian religious classes held in public school buildings on school time. Today the chief significance of the McCollum case is that it was the first of series of cases brought under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution where a practice by a local or state governmental body was actually held to violate the First Amendment's "establishment of religion" clause.
