Church & State: A Briefing Paper from Pew

The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life has posted an update of its basic "white paper" on church-state issues in the courts, noting the Supreme Court's decision to grant cert in Hosanna Tabor Church v. EEOC, about which I blogged earlier this week.
The Pew paper offers a concise overview of the legal and constitutional issues involved and is a good starting point for anyone trying to get their heads around these very complicated issues.
